A collection of artists, designers and illustrators will be invited by Patterns of Play during the season to take part in the project with many being based in Norfolk or having some connection to the local area. They will be allocated a different iconic player from Norwich City's history to interpret into an artistic portrait using a variety of styles including illustration, painting, drawing and photography.
