Back in August this year a guy called Lourenço contacted me to see if I would be interested in participating in a group project. The aim was to produce a football themed card game using a number of illustrators to create portraits of past and present football players. My part of the project was to create a portrait of Gordon Banks – a former player for England who was one of the best goal keepers of all time. This is the result. It was created in Adobe Illustrator with a vintage paper overlay.
Last count had the number of illustrators at 165 representing 64 countries.
