Preston-based illustrator David Robinson, 35, who has created some popular Sir Tom Finney cartoons in the past, has a new range about Preston up for sale.

The 35-year-old said his inspiration came from requests by friends

He said: “I did them last year for the Harris Open. I had loads of people asking about them. Because of the tourist information centre closing there isn’t masses of these types of things available anymore.

“So I just decided I’d do these three and see how they go.”

The first celebrates historic facts and trivia about Preston and includes some of its key place names and monuments.

A second is a colourful collage of major buildings in the city from St Walburge’s Church to Preston Bus Station.

The final print is a cartoon cover celebrating the life of Preston North End legend Sir Tom Finney.
