This is a sad day in every football fan life, today my team,Newcastle United, lost the Derby with our bitter rivals, Sunderland. This is all I could do to stem my tears.

I`m really a self taught artist. A Geordie lad, hailing from a small mining village called Pegswood in Northumberland, originally, from Polish parents. I now live in Stannington, Northumberland, where I’m enjoying all that retirement has to offer.

I am available for commissions, including portraiture, animals and also for one off caricatures, for hire to wedding receptions, parties, local schools, fun fairs and fetes etc.

    I am so sorry Jan! I have been there and know the feeling. I had to watch my son in the 3rd quarter of a
    game struggling to win, and no one was there to help. And then at the end, the heads buried in jersys so
    we didn’t see their tears and rage. Oh, so sad and heartfelt.

  • Thanks Marriet, when your team loses, unless your a fan yourself, no-one really knows how sad you feel at the time, but eventually time is a great healer but the scars remain. So I decided after the game to sketch this, as a journal entry to myself, I suppose.
