I’ve been capturing various well known footballing philosophies in a minimalist style over the last year. So far I’ve illustrated the fortress like Catenaccio, the myriad of passing triangles that is Tiki Taka, the dynamic Total Football and now my latest is a nod to Brazilian culture’s close links to both football and music. I drew a parallel between the strings on a guitar, an instrument used in Samba music, and the free form creative way in which Brazil line out.
Dry grass, off-camber turn, under-inflated clinchers, roadie bike handling skills.
In retrospect, that crash was inevitable.
