Paul Draws Pets: Updates

There are a few things that I can't show yet, but here's a quick blast of recent activity carried out under my "Paul Draws Pets" side-project.

So, a quick run through of how it works. You, the customer message me with an image, I use it to create a fabulous pet portrait and send it to you through the post. The portraits are made with black and grey ink, sometimes pencil.

Unused "England Won!" image for BBC Sport

This image was to be published online by BBC Sport if England won the 2019 Rugby World Cup, sadly this was not to be because as you all know, England unfortunately failed to beat South Africa in the final.

...And even more sadly for me, the image remains irrelevant. Thankfully I can show it off regardless.

The current squad roll up to an exclusive nightclub 
for previous winners. Waiting at the door is the 
2003 World Cup-winning squad, with expressions
ranging from bemused to whatever-I-

The image features current head coach Eddie Jones, eyeballing the 2003 coach Clive Woodward who is posing as a doorman alongside Martin Johnson. Mike Tindall and Jony Wilkinson pause from cocktail slurping to gape from the doorway at the (not) new champions headed by Owen Farrell holding the Webb Ellis Cup. Behind Owen you should, if I've done my job correctly, be able to spot Harlequin star Kyle Sinckler and Sale Shark's Tom Curry ...Sale is just down the road from my house, where I drew this. So there's that.  

Oh, and before I go: the original ink-on-paper
drawing. I added the VIP sign later and changed
Eddie's flag from Japan to an England one. 

I should point out that most of the ideas came from Nick at BBC Sport and his crew. Good eggs.

Up the Irons!
