Crick man's passion takes him from Michelin star restaurants to creating his very own stars
An artist from Crick is following his passion...and having a jolly good laugh while he's at it.
Tom Gallagher describes himself as 'just a guy that loves drawing and laughing at the same time'.
He said: "After working in high end hospitality for years such as Michelin star restaurants and top hotels, I decided to move my career in a different direction to allow myself time and space to work on my real passion - drawing.
"More specifically, drawing for a laugh. I always thought laughter is the best medicine and now more then ever I think it's important to be able to laugh at ourselves, and whenever we can."
Tom started creating caricatures to make people smile.
He then decided to share his work with a wider audience.
Tom has his own Etsy shop and his drawings include Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and Marilyn Monroe.
"I did a picture of a family member, Pam Rankin, who lives in Crick," Tom added.
"I call it 'Lady Pamela the 1st of Cricksworthshire Loves her Ice-cream". The title may need work!"
The caricatures have gone down a storm, among family, friends and online.
Tom added: "The world needs to smile more, Hopefully my art helps make that happen."
