Norwich City v Preston North End
Sky Bet Championship
Wednesday August 22, 2018
"I’m a Freelance Illustrator based in Kent. I studied and then graduated from Plymouth University in 2016 with a First Class BA (Hons) Degree in Illustration. I’ve been fully freelancing since the beginning of 2018 and have managed to work with some fantastic clients and companies along the way. My work uses textures and halftones to create a nostalgic and retro aesthetic, reminiscent of old comic books which my work is influenced by but then given a contemporary twist to create my own style.
I made the cover artwork of Craig Fleming by drawing out and then inking a portrait of him heading the ball as he was known for his powerful headers. I then edited my ink drawing in Adobe Photoshop, added the Norwich City colour scheme and as previously mentioned I went and used textures and halftones to really enhance the image and do Craig Fleming justice in this illustration I have created."
