Illustrated World Cup:

I am very excited for this year’s world cup, and as a small personal project in between other bits I’ve got going on, I’ve started drawing a bunch of the footballers taking part.

Here they are, divided into groups. Fun likeness practice, and playing with textures to try and convey some movement/energy.

If you’re following me on twitter or instagram @matthew_brazier , you will be seeing more of these on a regular basis, as I will be continuing on a match by match basis too!

Any/all feedback welcome as it’s a slightly looser/newer/rougher way of working. Monoprint/inks, coloured digitally.

Hi Matthew, I bought your book of boxing men at the Fruit Gallery at the Edinburgh Book Fair and I was wondering if you could tell me a little more about it; if it has a title, who printed it and if it's digital art work. Thank you and all the best, Josie Reed

Matthew Brazier Illustration Answer:

Hello!

I’m glad you liked the book enough to buy it! Thank you for being in touch.

It’s a hand-pulled screenprinted book which I printed and then bound myself using my old university’s facilities. It’s limited to an edition of 10 books. The images were put together from a series of drawings I did, inspired by a short story by Ethan Coen. The project is called “Destiny”, the same name as the short story.

I have some images of the process which I’ve attached below (I hope they work)… (please excuse my unkempt appearance in the photo, it was just a phase)

Thanks again for being in touch - I hope you enjoyed the rest of the fair!
More of my work can be seen on this blog or on my website: www.brazierillustration.co.uk
