And now Michael Sporn!

The last three months have really been awful. First Diane in November, then Robin Allan earlier this month and yesterday Michael Sporn (1946 -2014). You can read Michael Barrier's and John Canemaker's homages here.

Rita and I had the pleasure of meeting Michael Sporn at his studio in New York during our last trip to New York a few years ago. I knew Michael as a dedicated animation historian, through his blog, which I read every day and through many exchanges of emails about Disney history. After that trip I also discovered all his animated masterpieces.

This is all happening too fast. I am, once again, shocked and on the verge of crying.

Rest in Peace Michael.
