Desmond Heeley RIP

My tribute to the great designer Desmond Heeley, who died this past weekend. I am very honoured to have this delightful sketch, which he sent to me as a thank you for sending him a DVD of The National Ballet of Canada's Merry widow. I was equally honoured to have him chat on the phone to me for an hour! I will never forget hearing the voice at the other end of the line saying "My name is Desmond Heeley" and me saying "THE Desmond Heeley???!!!"
