    Lewis Clark was delighted to find out his drawing of 'Lewis McCoo' would be replicated to a print and sold across the world.

    A YOUNG Scot, whose story of finding out he had Asperger’s touched hearts across the world, has had his artistic dreams come true.

    Lewis Clark was delighted to find out his Steven Brown style drawing of ‘Lewis McCoo’ would be replicated to a print and sold across the world.

    The Scottish artist was so touched by his story that he wanted to meet the young lad.

    Steven invited Lewis and his family to his in shop in Ayr, where he told him that he would be replicating his drawing to prints and donating all profits to Scottish Autism.

    Lewis found out last week that he has Aspergers after his parents took the decision that it was time to tell him.

    His gran Isobel wanted a way of showing him that he can achieve whatever he sets out to do.

    She posted a picture of Lewis’ drawing with a message appealing to her friends and family to share the post.

    She said: “I wanted to make his weekend a wee bit brighter and show him that his artwork has the possibility to travel everywhere.”

    Lewis sealed the deal with Steven who said he would replicate the drawing to a print to be sold across the world

    He said: “I wanted to praise him for his amazing attitude, his brilliant McCoo, and to confirm what his gran was hoping…that he could in fact achieve anything.”

    Lewis and his family visited Steven at his store in Ayr yesterday where they spent the day with Steven who confirmed the good news about his drawing.

    “What better way to show him what he could achieve than to take his design, replicate it and sell it with all the money being donated to his families chosen charity; Scottish Autism.

    “He’s a phenomenal young man and I’m privileged to have had the chance to meet him”.
