Football Centaur

Jeff Bowman and myself battled for 90 minutes to create an artwork inspired by the game for Nike Football. The live event was held at Cargo as part of the Art of Football, a project by SHOWstudio and organized by YCN. It was great fun to have an audience and limited time.

The collage was made of ink pen drawings, fridge magnets and letraset. The centaur is kicking his own head and holding the ball in his hands, in a blatant parody of football. As such, I was pleasantly surprised when a few weeks later Nike commissioned another artwork for a different campaign, the Art of Tennis.

The Association Of Illustrators to choose me as a Member of the month for July 2008 and featured this artwork in their online bulletin.
