Wayne Rooney Caricature

As world Cup fever is about to grip the world I thought it would be an appropriate time to paint Mr Wayne Rooney.

Keith Myatt Caricature

This is my friend Keith Myatt, ceramicist by day and wrestler by night. Keith has been wrestling for over 20 years and has met and wrestled some of the top names in the industry (Ric Flair, Bret Hart, Jake 'the snake' Roberts etc etc) and as old age is catching up with him (nearly 51) he's now also moving over into the world of acting.
Don't let the scary, hard man pose fool you the blokes got a heart of gold and a great friendly personality but be warned if you ever meet him, and he corners you ... he can talk a glass eye asleep and for the love of God, never, ever leave any chocolate eclairs lying around ;)

Motorheads Lemmy Kilmister

I have always been a huge music fan particularly in the rock/metal genre and in my teens Motorhead were one of my favourite groups. Born in my home city of Stoke on Trent Lemmy is one of Rocks true legendary characters and a true "Beer drinker and Hellraiser" that's still going strong well into his sixty's and not an ounce of a healthy life style in sight.
