Happy Birthday Harald Siepermann!!

Today you would have turned 58. Sadly you passed away too early, at the age of 50. I can’t help to wonder what beautiful designs and projects would have come from your pencil if you were still at the front line in the world of animation. However, the immense amount of work you have left behind remains an inspiration for other artists and aspiring character designers.

My thoughts go out to Harald’s family, friends, and former colleagues who miss him every day.

Happy Birthday Harald Siepermann!!
