Champion football designs

"Wallchampion" at El futbol es asi exhibition in Valencia, 2012

"Subbuteochair", Marc Ligos at El futbol es asi exhibition in Valencia, 2012

I wish I could say these were some of my designs but sadly not the case this time. More than 100 years of this sport opens up a forum to share your opinion on the culture and development around football.

A sporting spell

"With the Kings of Sports, it's Chesterfield"
One of hundreds of ads that filled magazines, tv and radio commercials throughout the 50s, 60s and 70s. Sportsmen and women and celebrities were the typical stereo-types.

i find myself buying sliced wheat bread

Hello fans, found this ad campaign from the Ads of the World from a few year's back.  Love the headlines and caption which reads "What's happening to you is called a World Cup.  The sports newspaper that knows how it feels every four years".   A great example of how a good concept is worth a thousand words and images.

walk around the house like a champion

Another glitter work to my collection.  I love this quote and how it relates to the champion in all of us, that winner attitude and that glow that comes from within when we achieve our goals.  I know it sounds a bit over-confident and bold.  Still, true champions stretch the boundaries between confidence and an obnoxious cockiness.

rest on your laurels

I have just added this glitter work to my shop in etsy.    The Greeks gave a wreath of laurels to crown the winner.   While the quote comes from the idea that our heroes can rest in their glory and suggests a praise, it is more a suggestion of laziness and lack of application.  
My quote for the day, the sky's the limit so always aim higher!

Dear Fan
I am back!  You have probably been wondering where I got to and the truth is never enough for you my dear fan, who want to follow my every move.  While to you I am a star, I get absorbed by my busy days and nights and I do want to indulge you.  This is my Fancard, it will be launched with a customised football rack travelling all the way to Rio de Janeiro tomorrow.  While I wish I could travel with it and shake your hand I promise you I can't and so I will send you my autograph and a personal note.
I thankyou for your time and look forward to hearing from you once again.
I am off to practice some juggling, here it is a beautiful day.
