Jim Craig is a Community Arts Chaplain in the parishes of Gateshead and Bensham, he also runs a gallery, Sanctuary Artspace, which is installed along the north wall of St Edmund’s Chapel on Gateshead High Street. You can read his blog site here.

He tweets as @JamesOMCraig and earlier today I accidentally stumbled across a Twitter conversation in which he was offering, for one day only to create free emoji portraits. So I immediately replied ‘I want one!’

I don’t know Jim at all, but sometimes you just have to have a Twitter punt, which I have now decided is called a ‘twunt’!

Later in the day Jim tweeted me back ‘Voila’, and here is the amazing finished portrait. How cool is that?
