Hercule Van Wolfwinkle: Worthing pet artist raises £50k for homeless

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.
