There’s not long now until the World Cup starts and I’m already filled with the usual mixture of hope, expectation and pessimism.
I’m looking forward to us (England that is) strolling through the group stage and then going out with a whimper in the quarter-finals again. I will then no doubt do my usual thing of declaring that I will never watch England again (until the next time).
Anyway, football aside, I was flicking through the latest edition of Computer Arts magazine and they had a great article on World Cup posters. I kinda forgot how cool those World Cup posters of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s were (some examples below), so I had a go at doing one myself (see above). You can see it as a full web page in my sketchbook here.
