In the mood for gifting?
Just think of the joy you’ll bring to your SO’s eyes when you hand them a painting of a bowl of fruit crafted by Wayne Rooney. He or she will be amazed at the endless list of subliminal messages you’ll conjure up as the two of you dissect Rooney’s meticulously detailed, erect bananas.
Or imagine the chills that will race down the spine of your BFF as they discover Steven Gerrard’s primary school-style cut and paste jobby?! And to think, we thought stick-figure styling was this jack-of-all-trades true calling!
But let’s not get all art snobby about it, after all – all proceeds from sales go to the Willow Foundation, which organises special days out for seriously ill 16-40 year olds. Get in there and bid, Kickettes!
