Bono Mitchell has passed away

Local artist Bono Mitchell, long time-friend and employer of cartoonist Richard Thompson via Bono-Tom studio, has passed away according to her nurse on Facebook.

For many years Bono and Tom Specht art-directed magazines that used Richard's art, and she was one of his closest friends, visiting him regularly as he fell sick. She was a talented artist in her own right, and did lovely watercolors. Beyond that, she was a true character - larger than life in many ways - and a caring friend who will be missed.
