It’s a bird-dog

31 January 2007 by Dawn

Sir Paul McCartney is one of a number of celebrities to have submitted dog pictures and paintings to the Alive + Well Dog Project, to be auctioned in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital. The dogs have all been created using the same bizarre template – although they also have their own peculiarities.


According to one report, Paul’s contains ‘wings, breasts and an evil eye’. Personally I think the sketch looks remarkably like another local character –anyone else think it resembles a Liver Bird?


Other celebs that have been dabbling with the paint include Keith Allen  and Damien Hirst. The Celebrity Dog pictures can be seen until 7th Feb at The Hospital, Covent Garden. For more information visit www.thehospital.co.uk
