Dudu Geva, the best known and loved Israeli illustrator, who illustrated “Sputnik in Love” – released on WM Recordings in january – died today from a sudden heart attack, at the age of 55.
His famous character was “The Duck”. He was sued by the Disney Corporation, after his duck had been raping Donald Duck in one of his books, and had to pay 10,000 dollars. He once said that he wants to be buried in a plate of Hummus (oriental Israeli food).
Be nice to illustrators, they are very sensitive.
