Norwich City v Leeds United
Sky Bet Championship
Saturday August 25, 2018
"I’m a graphic designer and illustrator from the Midlands and a really big football fan. I’ve been creating football illustrations professionally for around 2 years now but from an early age I have always loved drawing different players and boots in different styles.
When creating the illustration for the Norwich City programme cover, I used my signature style of the paper rip. I started by researching the player Mark Bowen and his most iconic shirts he wore for the club over the years and put them together into one image. This style works really well through social media as you can relate to the players or the shirts. I also find the more detailed the patterns on the shirts are, the better the final illustration looks!"
