Raise funds for Soho’s homeless

The Union club is raising funds for the homeless in Soho.

Hi, I’m JP Flintoff.

I’m helping The Union club to raise funds for Soho’s homeless community – by drawing club members like you!

For your donation, I will draw you over Zoom. It will take ten minutes, at most 15, at a time to suit us both.

Your donation will help to support a homeless community that is more than usually vulnerable during the epidemic of coronavirus.

If you only want my drawing as a digital file – great. I’ll send you that. Here are some I did already:

If you want it printed on fine art paper, with light-fast ink, I won’t be able to sort it out for you but the process is simple, and I have just this week been offered a 50% discount by the printer I use (details below).

Thank you club member Jaime Marshall for this idea.

Entirely optional

If you wish, I can also record the drawing session, in which we chat about this and that, as in the video above. The recording will show both of us – me drawing, you being drawn.

The recording will (I guess) be uploaded to The Union website, helping to sustain a sense of the club’s members while we’re all apart.

But like I say, the video bit is entirely optional.


Just click on this link to find a day and time that suits you: check dates.


You can send it to The Union, using this PayPal link (and the reference “Be Drawn”): paypal.me/unionclubsoho

Printing discount

For my own art printing, I use theprintspace.com. It just so happens they sent me a promotion this week if I introduce others to their service.

With the discount code (RZNJV57) you can get 50% off at the checkout on your first order. The normal price of a high quality 9 × 6 inch print is £37.35. Larger is more expensive (obviously).

I can’t help you with the printing, but it’s really very simple. Just upload the digital file I send you to The Print Space website, choose your size, and don’t forget to add the discount code at checkout: RZNJV57.

POSTSCRIPT: I made a video showing how to upload your picture, for Shelley and Joe. It might help you too:
