Halle-friggin-lujah, 2016 is finally over.

While there were some bright spots (Cubs winning the World Series, anyone?), what many will remember of last year is the unprecedented amount of major celebrity deaths. It felt like every other week we lost a star of stage or screen that was a huge part of our lives, and each fresh heartbreak was rougher than the last.

Well, in case you still have any tears left to lose, artist Martin Bruckner has done illustrations of some of the biggest celebs to pass in 2016. His blog, Spaghetti Toes, isn’t usually so dark, but given the past 365 days, he couldn’t help but look back with sadness:
