A pet portrait artist has raised £50,000 for a homeless charity with his self-confessed “rubbish” pictures.

Phil Heckels, from Worthing, West Sussex, began working under the alias Hercule Van Wolfwinkle in 2020.

He drew his dog and put it on Facebook, offering paid-for commissions as a joke, but genuine requests flooded in.

His trademark wonky legs and crooked eyes have proved wildly popular with pet owners, with dozens of people contacting him every day.

Additional merchandise has also been created, including tea towels and calendars.
