Welcome back to another week ahead! This week we have some fun animal-related news for you. The ‘artist’ Hercule van Wolfwinkle has raised more than 50,000 pounds for his local charity by creating drawings that depict photographs of pets sent in to his Facebook page. His ‘ultra-realistic style’ is so popular that his queue of drawings are almost endless. You can find the news article on the donations here, and some of his drawings are featured below.
