Sad day for ART!

Crazy story.. two weeks ago, I found a book I'd bought in 1990, that had been stored away in a drew.
I wrote to ZEE, (as he asked me to call him) & asked if he'd like to talk about doing a T Shirt design collaboration for my new line & also if he'd mind signing my found book?
He's was cool, inviting me to his Apt in Battery Park.
When I got there, he said his wife was sick with flu, so I shouldn't come up, he also complained that he felt out of whack, like he was getting sick too.
He seemed really into the shirt idea & took his time tagging up my book.
Its always nice when an artist I'm a fan of turns out to not be arrogant, or makes one feel like you're annoying them by asking for a signature.

Rest In Peace ZΣΣ
