Story behind the artwork
I love to get a reference about a player neatly into my work. I had everything ready to roll on this poster, the Cruyff illustration was finished, the background slotted together nicely enough but I just knew there was some potential for a diagram to work around the feet. They felt, in addition to the ball, like three loose threads that needed tying up. Thankfully my maths teacher was right, you do need theorems in real life after school, and the Pythagorean theorem came forward in my moment of need. It goes to show that you can make stuff up as you go along and it can come together quite nicely. If you concentrate on the planning stage too much you get bogged down under the pressure to execute all your half ideas. It seems to be best to just jump in and adapt the work as it's being made.
