AN art teacher has received thousands of comments on social media after posting his artwork showcasing St Helens’ best landmarks.

John Guy has had his artwork shared hundreds of times on social media, which he created over a few months on Adobe Illustrator.

The 37-year-old, who is an Art and Design teacher at Beamont Collegiate Academy in Orford, said: “I’m very happy with the comments received online about the art work, I’m personally proud of the work itself and glad others are enjoying the work as well.

“It took a couple of months to create. I decided to create it as I had created a Liverpool and Manchester cityscape previously and wanted to create one of St Helens to show the buildings and landmarks that have created the identity of St Helens.

“I use a range of media to create artworks dependant on what it is I want to achieve.”

The artwwork includes pictures he digitally created showing Dream, Pilkington's Glass, St Helens Central, The Beechams Building, The Totally Wicked Stadium, The World of Glass, The Theatre Royal, The Steve Prescott Bridge and more.
