Tony Hart

The British artist Tony Hart popular with children in the seventies and eighties for his art programmes has sadly been forced to stop creating art due to ill health.

Getting a bit too soppy here eh? I tried to find a decent short Youtube vid of Take Hart-with no luck.

I did come across this though:

I caught some of Tony Hart when I visited the UK when I was a kid and loved his show.
