Scorer of some of the most beautiful goals ever put in the back of the net, Thierry Henry.
I’ve been asked so much and for so long to make an illustration of Jack Wilshere I just had to. The guy is perfectly poised to excel in the game as it is at the moment. His build, dynamism, vision and tenacity mark him out as an outstanding footballer. He’s Arsenal through and through and I showed that by having the Arsenal cannon in the stars. Also his number is spelt out by the London cityscape. Oh and he’ll be captain soon!
I wanted to address the image of Walcott as purely a speed merchant. I’ve heard a few people say he is just a sprinter that plays football. This informed the classic sprinter leaving the blocks stance.
Here are some of the portraits I’ve done lately. I’m having great fun doing these. I love to hear what people think of them so if you feel like dropping a comment please do. :)
