Filmmaker and illustrator Jane Aaron dies at 67

She did animations on the Sesame Street television series, illustrated children's books and made short films.
Radio Dupree came across her name when she collaborated with Donald Fagen, and we'll just quote our own post from April 2010:

Back in the second half of the 1980's Donald Fagen wrote the music to three short films directed by Jane Aaron; Traveling Light, Set In Motion and This Time Around. The connection being that Jane's brother Peter had been at Bard College at the same time as Donald and Walter Becker.

Two of the three videos can be enjoyed on the internet. More on Jane in this Animation World Network article.
