Well, he had been battling illness for a while I think, he was quite old (he had a great run!). Don't think he was producing much artwork anymore. Don't feel bad : )

An alltime great though I'm gonna look stupid and say I thought he already had died.  I believe I must have misunderstood or been misinformed some time ago
