Good News: Homeless Man Who Sold Sketches Of Dog Now Featured In Art Show

John Dolan, a 43-year-old artist living in England, struggled with poverty, drug addiction and homelessness for much of his life. One day, a fellow homeless woman gave Dolan a Staffordshire Bull Terrier puppy. The dog’s name was George, and he would come to transform his new owner’s life. For three years Dolan sold sketches of George and the surrounding buildings to passersbys for a few dollars, until he was approached by a gallery director named Richard Howard-Griffin. Howard-Griffin discovered him and helped him put on his first art show last year and it was a huge success. Click here to see some of Dolan’s many sketches!
