An Artistic Tribute:
A few weeks ago, Croydon fan Jason Casey saw an article in the Croydon Advertiser about Jack Hines, an artist embarking on a mission to draw every building in London. Jason wrote to the artist to see if he would consider drawing the Croydon Arena.
After several emails back and forth we are delighted that the resultant work of art is dedicated to Andy Hillburn and has the Forever Young flag created by Croydon fan, Lee, super-imposed onto it.
Jack has strong Croydon family links himselfg, and is selling certified prints of his artwork. Information on these are on his website Drawing All Of London
He will hopefully be at the match on Saturday to chat to fans about the drawing process and the huge task he has set himself.
The original artwork will be displayed at a future date in the Supporters Bar
