Photos: McFly wreck our journal (with dirty doodles)

If you thought McFly’s artistic talents were strictly musical then think again – they’re pretty nifty with a pen and paper.

McFly put in a headlining performance at Jolly Day out on Sunday 29th Aug, and, armed with our “Wreck This Journal”, we encouraged the boys to engage in a little backstage drawing.

What is a “Wreck This Journal?” we hear you ask – well we’ll tell you. Think of “Wreck This Journal” as the anarchist’s artist’s way – the book for those who’ve always wanted to draw outside the lines but were afraid to do it.

For anyone who’s ever wished to, but had trouble starting, keeping, or finishing a journal or sketchbook comes “Wreck This Journal”, an illustrated book featuring a subversive collection of suggestions, asking readers to muster up their best mistake – and mess-making abilities to fill the pages of the book (and destroy them).

One page requests you to hang your journal in a public place, and have others draw in it. Step up Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Harry Judd and Dougie Poynter.

We were overwhelmed by the effort put in by the McBoys, and we have to say – Danny, Dougie, what attention to detail (you dirty, dirty boys)!
