Tony Hart

I saw today that one of my childhood staples has left us.  Tony Hart, the television artist from “Take Hart” and “Hartbeat” died on the 18th January at the age of 83. 

Tony Hart was always enthusiastic about his work, and was known to use almost any medium to produce work.  On one occasion he painted an elephant on a runway with whitewash, another time producing a work by suspending paint-filled Fairy Liquid bottles over a paper-covered floor.  His style and fun-filled attitude have helped to encourage generations of budding artists, as well as entertaining those of us who are less able.

My enduring memory of Tony is of  his clay Aardman-created side-kick, Morph [^].  Good-Bye Mr Hart.
