His lack of artistic skill may be the underlying theme to his collection, but this hasn’t stopped the portraits becoming an online hit.
“About two years ago I picked up my pencil and had a go at a portrait,” he told the Belfast Telegraph.
“I thought it would be funny to post the drawing on Facebook, to see if any of my Facebook friends could guess who the drawing was of. There was a lot of merriment and laughter about it – no one could recognise who it was.”

Among his drawing subjects are Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon, Manchester United footballer Wayne Rooney, Irish actress Sharon Horgan and Northern Irish political figures, First Minister Arlene Foster and her Deputy Martin McGuinness.
