Croydon born former England international cricketer Michael Carberry is leaving his bat behind and about to start a new journey - this time wielding a pencil instead.
Not having an easy ride of it, the former Surrey opening batsmen was struck with cancer at the peak of his career, forcing him on a long road to recovery.
He reignited an old passion to help deal with his illness.
Now retired - he's hoping his hyperrealist pencil drawings will knock his new audience for six.
Michael has upcoming shows starting at Campbells of London gallery on the 12th until the 21st of June - and then the 13th to the 16th of August.
