Charlie Hebdo cartoonist Bernard (Tignous) Verlhac’s coffin was covered in cartoons

From the New York Daily News:

One of the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists killed in a bloody rampage against the Paris magazine was buried Thursday in a coffin covered in cartoon drawings.

During a private funeral for Bernard (Tignous) Verlhac, the 57-year-old?s friends and family sketched final farewells on his casket as they remembered ?the King of Jokes,? BBC News reported.

Reminds me of Mell Lazarus’s piano.
