I’m sure you’ll be reading a lot of tributes and testaments to this great artist and innovator’s work and personality over the next few days. People like to say great things about those who passed on- it’s a tradition. But for this man it won’t be exaggeration- all the great things said about him will be absolutely accurate.
He brought a lot of joy to the world, probably more than anyone will ever realize. He sparked countless imaginations, and inspired tons of people who in turn have done the same. His contributions to art and entertainment can’t really be understated. He’ll be missed.
Rest In Peace, June 29, 1920 – May 7, 2003
