A collection of collages of Lionel Messi using text from a copy of the farmer’s weekly magazine. The collages have then been photocopied onto acetate and placed over the original collage. One of the collages is in colour while the other is in black and white.
Last three photograms in the series of football related photograms.
After Theo Walcott’s recent success playing as a striker and against Newcastle I decided to capture his celebration for his third goal in this Photoshop painting. The illustration takes on the same style as used in the card designs.
So following on from the farm photograms I also produced this set of two football photograms featuring Nemanja Vidic and Wayne Rooney. This time the title or quote is farm related so running repairs refers to an injury and making hay while the sun shines refers to getting the job done by winning – in this case the Manchester derby.
Part of my inspiration for designing cards has come from artist and filmmaker Richard Swarbrick. For those who are unfamiliar with his work follow the links below, but I can tell you that several of his football animations, for The Sun, have become viral sensations on YouTube. In some ways I prefer the single illustration images to the animated videos, as they capture some fantastic sporting moments.
