R.I.P. Tony Hart 1925-2009

It was with a tear that I listened to the news that one of my inspirations as a child had passed away at the age of 83. Tony Hart inspired so many people of my generation to find fun and pleasure in art, through hosting such shows as Take Hart and Vision On. It was probably during the process of watching him that I decided I wanted to draw and do what he did for the rest of my life.
If you've seen his shows, or were affected by him in any way, there is a remembrance book on his website.

Good sketch Paul - not as I remember him though when a 'littley' all those years ago (lots of 'em) sitting and scribbling in front of the 12" black and white TV being inspired !!
Sad loss - he has a lot to answer for !!
Missed this in the news I must 'YouTube' him.
