Meet Robbie Macartney, a local artist in Swift Current, holding the city by sharpie.

Pictured here is Robbie with one of his favourite pieces called "Dirt Man"

What started out for Robbie as a hobby, is quickly going viral and started raising some money locally for his unique work. He has appeared on the Youth Talent Stage at the Lyric Theatre where he started selling his art work on t-shirts for $10 donating part of the proceeds back to the Salvation Army.
