A King's Lynn artist began drawing a portrait of Juggling Jim just a month before the street entertainer died.
Luke Taylor, from Taylormade Tattooz in Tower Street, was shocked to hear of Juggling Jim's untimely death and was able to finish the painting within two days.
'He has been in our town for many years, he was a character so I thought it would be a nice thing to do, to paint him.' Mr Taylor said.
After posting a picture of the painting on social media, Mr Taylor said he was overwhelmed by the response from the public.
'I was amazed by how many people liked it, I have had about 30 people ask for prints.'
Mr Taylor was approached by Coggles Funeral Directors to display the painting at Juggling Jim's funeral on February 15, 2017. It also appeared on the funeral service sheet.
Mr Taylor hopes to donate the painting to Lynn Museum.
