Where've I seen him before...

Ollie and Quentin started life, many years ago, as comic characters for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution here in the UK. The main character was a lifeboatman called Stormy Stan who, unfortunately, was owned by the RNLI and so couldn't be used in my comic. This was a real shame as he was a great character and would have worked really well with my two guys. I mention this now because he had a beard and looked identical to Nobby with that beard. I still draw him for the RNLI. Here's a recent comic I drew for their children's magazine using him and his new crew that replaced Ollie (or Eric as they knew him).
