Dylan Thomas sketch auction to take place in October

A recently discovered sketch by the unofficial Welsh national poet Dylan Thomas is offered at Roger Jones & Co. in Cardiff on October 10.

Dylan Thomas sketch
Thomas drew the sketch on Gargoyle Club headed paper  

It dates to 1949 and depicts an extremely drunk friend on an evening out in Soho.

It's expected to sell for around £1,500-2,000 ($2,007-2,676).

Auctioneer Ben Rogers Jones told the BBC: "Dylan Thomas has a huge following both in the UK and in the United States.

"This simple drawing gives us a fantastic, detailed account of a bohemian night out in Soho, 65 years ago almost to the day."
