The Smell of Football

Design Illustration

Mick 'Gaz' Rathbone approached me one day after finding my contact details online, to ask about designing a cover for the sequel to his massively successful book; The Smell of Football. He had finished writing and wanted to self publish. So we came up with the idea of subuteo players as illustrations, and each one representing a team he had managed throughout his career. It was a lot of fun to create, and Gaz was an absolute pleasure to work with. The final cover is pretty eye catching, and Gaz has had a lot of positive comments about it, swell as his new book.
