Artist, Ray Sherlock, gets into election fever with his caricature
portraits of the three main contenders in the countdown to ballot day this
Friday.
I’m tired of looking at so many photos of the three leaders on lamp posts
and in every paper and at this stage I could paint these guys with my eyes
closed.
