This is my contribution to http://www.idontlovesoccer.co.uk/ It’s a publication and Exhibition - part of a Liverpool Art School Graphic Design & Illustration Staff Project, based on an essay by Umberto Eco. Myself and colleagues have produced a riso Publication and Exhibition in celebration of the World Cup 2014. We’ve had a low key launch at Liverpool best and coolest coffee and scran gaff – the legendary Bold Street Coffee. If you’re really clever you should be able to work out what the text says.

I created a foil blocked character Vuvu, he’s based on all those irrelevant football mascots that end up in the bargain bins. you’ll see him used throughout the summer on a series of editioned screen prints, I’m producing. Sepp Blatter keeps texting, asking if he can have a free print.
