Creative ways to make ends meet

Drew Copus is a Hastings lad and one of our better known graffiti artists. Amongst other things, he was commissioned to paint the octopus on the roof of the chip shed on St Leonards’ seafront. He’s good, and he often gets commissions, but sadly, not often enough to keep the wolf from the door. Erica Smith finds out more about Drew’s latest venture.
