Farewell, Al :(

Al Hirschfeld, King of Caricature, Dies

They didn't mention his work on the "Rhapsody in Blue" number in Fantasia 2000. I knew him best for that, but I initially became aware of him my first year at RIT when a friend pointed out one of the murals in the tunnels under the dorms that was drawn in his style (or maybe a copy of one of his works). She pointed it out to me because of his tradition of hiding the name of his daughter "NINA" in each of his drawings, and she knew of my infatuation with a girl named Nina from high school. :)
