i really like this, congrats on getting on to the guardian. The only thing i would change is to put him more to the left, it would be a better composition, nearly so he's running on to the poster, his face should be centre.
Thanks Alan. Once I have my illustrations done I usually find it hard to figure out how to present them. Cheers for advice.
Love the poem. Love the illustration. And I love Xavi - so to sum up: not bad :)
You got it on the Guardian? Where?Agree re. the positioning comment btw, more obvious in the one with the grey background. And if I'm being really picky, though the image is awesome, I'm not sure it links to the poem that well - one of him hitting a pass would maybe be better than him celebrating a goal. That might just be my opinion though.
Not a huge fan of the illustration but the poem is fuckin marvellous
How did you do the illustration? I would have preferred if you used some harder lines to accentuate folds and increase depth. But pretty awesome all the same!Great poem, Mr Multi-talented!
I thought the poem was great!
I like the composition as it is, hes leaning forward with the kind of impact he has on the pitch. He dominates the picture as he does the ball
Would love the possibility of buying it as a poster.
I love the poem! It's beautiful, because you perfectly and truly describe his wonderfull talent.
