A-List illustrations for a B-List feature.
A bespoke, original illustration to accompany a Time Out feature.
The illustration was well received by client and across social media.
Sticking to the brief.
The brief was to depict the portraits in the style of Panini football stickers, hugely popular in the UK in the 80s & 90s.
Panini was founded in Modena, Northern Italy by Benito and Giuseppe Panini in 1961. In their first year of operation they sold 15 million units of stickers. They almost doubled that in 1962, selling 29 million packets.
The UK-centric celebrities featured were Andi Peters, Calum Best, Shaun Williamson, Chesney Hawkes, John Challis, Dick and Dom, Dave Benson Phillips, Paul Merson, Pat Sharp, and children’s comedy duo The Chuckle Brothers.
Once I created the individual illustrations, they were coloured according to the colour scheme of the magazine section.
