Just heard cartoonist commandingly Irwin Hasen passed away today (3/13/2015).
I was fortunate enough to have him as an instructor at the Joe Kubert School back in the 1980s. He was in his late seventies back then but his spirit and enthusiasm was like someone in his twenties.
Here’s a short video from the New York Times spotlighting Mr. Hasen from December of 2011.
Irwin Hasen (1918-2015) – Rest in Peace.
