Eco-friendly pieces of art have been given the star treatment by a Todmorden artist.

Bob Follen runs Bob Art Models in the town and creates quirky pieces of artwork using recycled cardboard.

Many of his creations feature local building fronts in miniature, as well as hand-painted album covers and famous scenes from popular culture.

Now, Bob has branched out into caricature paintings of famous household names ranging from Alan Bennett and Leonard Nimoy to bake off buddies Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.

The cheeky caricatures are entitled ‘One Word Missing’ - each image includes a title or quote with the last word missing and if you know the character, you can solve the title.

A selection of these prints will now be on sale at the Kava Kafe from October 13 to November 9,, November 1 to November 2 at Todmorden Town Hall and Bob will also have stalls ats Holme Street Arts & Craft Fair, Hebden Bridge, on November 8 and December 13.

All of Bob’s prints are available to view on his facebook page.
