It is with great sadness that Business Connect Magazine is saying farewell to Manchester Cartoonist Tony Husband. We first met Tony at Sam’s Chop House in Manchester through owner Roger Ward back in 2015, interviewing him for a double page feature in the magazine. From then on Tony has been a regular cartoonist for the magazine in every single edition.
Tony suffered a fatal heart attack on the way to a Private Eye party in London. He was 73, survived by wife Carole, and photographer son Paul (who has done some fantastic work for Business Connect Magazine).
As a cartoonist Tony had a formidable reputation featuring in some other well known magazines, notably Private Eye with his long running strip ‘Yobs’. He has also published a number of books, some of which tackled some very personal challenging subjects: “Take Care Son” sharing his experience living with his Dad suffering from Dementia, also “From a Dark Place” about son Paul’s issues with addiction.
A great talent and friend will be sadly missed.
