Sigi von Koeding aka Dare, lost the fight with cancer on 6th March 2010 in a hospital in Basel. I had the pleasure of meeting him 2 years ago and let him know what a tremendous influence his work had on me. He was an amazing artist and a really nice, humble dude. Just another reminder that life is short. Take advantage of the time you have on this earth, and appreciate the important people in your life.
