This Artist Draws Hilarious Pet Portraits, Gives Them Unique Names And Special Descriptions

Art truly knows no boundaries and artists always know wow us with their endless creativity. There is no limitation when it comes to artworks, and if you think of art as some fancy, complicated stuff most people can’t understand, then Hercule Van Wolfwinkle is here to prove that you are wrong.

Phil Heckels (also know as Hercule Van Wolfwinkle, or Hercule for short) is a father from England who has raised over £50,000 to support the homeless with his “crappy” pet portraits, which all look pretty weird and adorable at the same time! The 39-year-old man admitted that he was no artist and had never drawn any piece of art before, but when he started doodling with his kid about a year ago, Hercule realized that he loved it. And to his surprise, his sketches were warmly welcomed by many other people as well!

Now Hercule has racked up 17.3k followers on Instagram and he even has his own website to promote his works and help more and more people in need. Before visiting his web for more hilarious “ultra-realistic” pictures (as Hercule calls them), let’s take a look at 40 outstanding ones we have collected right here:
