The guy is meant to be me and is an original Gerard Oswald drawing.
Because of my fixation with junk shops the chess gang think I rake dustbins.
I caught Gerard (then unemployed) doodling on beer mats in Sandy Bells.
I asked him to do some chess stuff and put them on the Corner.
Gary Lane contacted him through me to illustrate some of his books.
Other offers came in and Gerard now pulls in a comfortable living
from his art. The power oif the Corner.
