It is my sad duty to let folks know that Ed Higgins of DooDa Postage Works has gone to the big perforator in the sky. His sister Ginny just called to let me know.
Ed and I met in 1976 and proceeded to correspond almost every day for the next 10 years. We used to haggle over who was the king of artistamps, I said it was him and he argued it was me (lol). Now I can proclaim, it is true, Higgins was and still is the undisputed heavy weight champion of stamps!
E.F. Higgins III (b. 1949) grew up in a small town outside of Chicago, IL. He majored in Fine Arts at Western Michigan University but quit school two weeks before graduating. Higgins later attended the University of Colorado to receive his BFA and then went on to receive an MFA in 1976 from the same school, majoring in Painting and Printmaking. In the same year, Higgins left for New York City where he currently resides and works as a professional artist. He is a member of The Rivington School.
