My friend Liam Hanley, who has died aged 86, was a successful journalist, and worked as a subeditor on the Daily Mail, Daily Mirror, News Chronicle and Daily Herald. He joined Independent Television News in 1962.
He loved his job, but his main passion was art, and although essentially self-taught, he soon established a unique style. In 1962 he had a small exhibition at the Royal Society of Arts in London, followed by another at the Mermaid theatre. He showed regularly at the St Pancras and Camden festivals.
