R.I.P Harry Horse and Mandy, his beloved wife.

The death of Richard (Harry Horse) Horne, (Scotsman article here) and his wife Mandy, is incredibly sad. In fact, it's heart breaking. For once, words almost fail me and so I've put a bunch of links together so you can read about it for yourself.
Some things are are just unbearable.
Harry was an incredibly talented artist who produced works of astonishing beauty and great strength. From his New Yorker caricatures, his Horse Box for The Scotsman, his editorial work for Glasgow's Sunday Herald to his 'floppy bunnies' for Penguin Books his work was versatile and vibrant. A great British talent, he will be sorely missed.
