Hockey is now a big part of my life. However, before that draw a portrait of Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosbysta , because he is my boyfriend's favorite player, Shannon told the evening newspaper.

All his life in Scotland, lived and today Glasgow resident Shannon not specifically studied drawing.
I Have loved drawing for as long as I can remember. At first I just drew in school and I don't really at all in my free time. Then I made a photo accurate drawing of the eyes. When it was successful, I realized that I should do this more often, Shannon told me.
I Took the art of one substance in school, but I actually learned, because I've always had the skill to draw.Request Laine picture
Shannon did not take their own initiative to draw in Laine's portrait.
– they sent me a Laine pictures and was asked to make a picture of it. Now they have seen the outcome and have been very satisfied with it. It is always a great feeling when you can delight customers, Shannon said.
Shannon was happy to take against the wishes of the portrait subjects.
it's great to draw different players from different teams, Shannon said.Superstar was inspired by the
Shannon has received on social media plenty of praise and positive feedback on the drawing.
– Especially Since the image after the publication of the messages has become really a lot. A big thanks to the NHL, Hockey Night in Canadalle and TSN, who have published my work. I'm really taken with it. Even Jamie Benn began to follow me, Shannon, chuckling.
Benn's olympic champion and works for the sixth season for the Dallas Stars captain.Below the minimum wage
photo accurate drawing of is currently shannon's only job.
– I Do this for a living. Your own business running is still a pretty new thing and I just now get this much money. However, I hope that the business grows and begins to produce a little better, for the sacrifice of so many hours on each drawing, Shannon said.
Shannon is not far to deserve drawing even the minimum wage.
– My age, the minimum wage in Scotland is 6,15 £ (7,15 euro) per hour. Mitch Marner's portrait drawing took me more than 90 hours. If I had received the same minimum wage, which I could get working in a normal job, I would deserve drawing on over 553 pounds (about 644 million). I sold a drawing of the ebay auction at £ 250 (€291), so the hourly wage be less than three pounds. Raise my prices until the end of the year, so last year earned significantly less, Shannon frets.

Shannon tried to follow also the NHL and especially Penguinsia.
I Watch the matches on television, although because of the time difference, many games start only at night three time. I guess I'm a little crazy, but I'm Crosby and Yevgeny Malkinin a big fan.
Shannon has never been followed by the NHL in North America. His biggest dream is to get to follow the live Crosby and Malkinin extracts.
– Unfortunately, I still have not gotten any NHL match. I am a Penguins supporter, and a trip from Scotland to Pittsburgh is pretty expensive. But one day, I'll make sure to that trip, Shannon insurance.Patrik Laineesta is ever drawn in an incredibly precise images. Video Akke Island portfolio.
