Handsome Sam

This was a fun commission. The landlady of a micro pub called the “Handsome Sam” in Whitstable, Kent,  asked my to make this piece for her husband to celebrate the 3rd anniversary of the opening of the pub. Named the “Handsome Sam” after the owners own black and white cat called Sam, also features on the pub’s sign.
