If you’ve ever walked down Shoreditch High Street you’ll be familiar with a man and his dog that sit opposite Tesco. The man, John, is almost always sketching the buildings surrounding him as his dog, George, sits calmly by him watching people go by. John has been the subject of many conversations in Shoreditch, but not many people really know who he is, why he draws and where he’s from.
Filmmaker Will Robson-Scott took this curiosity once step further and approached John to see if he could make a short film about his life. John agreed, and took Will on a tour of London according to the key parts of his personal history. What Will was left with is now a candid short film in which we get more than a glimpse into this extraordinary man’s existence and the art that he creates. He describes how drawing is meditation, how difficult it is to live in the capital, and why you should always give money to the homeless no matter what you think they’re going to spend it on.
