The 31-year-old actor, best known for his portrayal as Finn Hudson on the hit Fox series, was found dead in his hotel room of a drug overdose on July 13, 2013, in Vancouver.
The past year has been one of coping and healing for many of Cory’s close friends and family. “Glee” honored the late actor during a truly touching tribute episode, while Lea Michele has kept his memory alive sharing personal stories not only in interviews, but through her music as well.
But it wasn’t just those who knew Cory that were effected by his passing. Millions of fans he touched throughout his career were grieving as well. In the days, weeks and months since his death, Gleeks have found a touching way to remember him: through fan art.
We gathered some of the drawings you created over the past year to not only honor and remember Cory, but to celebrate his life and the incredible impact he had on so many.
