Allan had been an illustrator for 20 years when in the early eighties he established The Artworks agency in London first representing colleague friends and later dedicating all his time to representing illustrators for another 20 years until he retired 2 years ago. During these 40 years Allan has also found the time to attend almost all home games of his beloved team Chelsea. In the last 2 years Allan has gone back to art school doing printmaking and life drawing.
Allan was very generous to invite me to join him tonight at Stamford Bridge Stadium for the game against Wycombe.
Chelsea won 4-0 and it was a wonderful (yet freezing) London evening with a mixture of illustration and football stories.
