This series of illustrations is based on small doodles I do in my sketchbook. They started off as innocent vignettes of feelings you get when playing in a match or training. Some illustrate qualms I have with the way the game is sometimes played, for instance the diving one. I tried to keep the old fashioned ball as a recurring theme throughout.
|An example of a sketch...|
I also wanted to depict certain matches or instances that stuck with me like Gareth Bale taking on Maicon in Whitehart Lane or Stevie G scoring against Olympiakos. I'll continue to add to the series as the works themselves don't take a long time to complete and I still have many more waiting in reserve.
As usual I really appreciate all the comments here and on twitter. RT's are great for getting the work to a wider audience so to anyone that takes the time, thank you very much. I hope you enjoy the illustrations.
And if you have any suggestions please don't hesitate to stick them in a comment or tweet and let me know!

Pepe Reina. He's a keeper.
Pepe, no one wants your shirt.
He's big, he's green. He's also red.

Suppose it was an okay goal.
That's a good question...
