Creating football illustrations are one of my favorites things. I really enjoy making these works, I feel comfortable drawing football players and the game itself.

Since many time, I collaborate with a magazine in Valencia. It’s called «The Barraca» and it’s highly recommended for Valencia CF fans. They know everything about the Spanish club and they analyze every aspect of the team: style of play, signings, history and curiosities.

To celebrate the century of the club, they published a special issue and they ask me to create four illustrations of the four best players of the season 2018/2019: The captain Dani Parejo, José Luis Gayà, Rodrigo Moreno and Neto, the goalkeeper. As they gave me total creative freedom, I decided to make two of these illustrations using ink and watercolors and the other two with digital tools (Procreate for iPad). Also they wanted a «sticker style» for this.

Here you have the final artwork for each illustration. As you can see, Rodrigo and Neto are the ones I made with watercolors and ink. I love the irregular color and the small fails even when I worked to correct them with Adobe Photoshop. Football illustrations, as I said at the beginning of the article, are the best to me!
