This week I’ve decided to try something different; a break from the norm. Instead of the usual typographical designs I’ve gone in a different direction.
Like most Irish natives, I love my sport. Football, Rugby, Golf, Snooker, Hurling – I’ll basically watch more or less anything with a ball. It’s this passion for sport that lead me towards the idea of producing a range of artworks inspired by some of the greatest sporting legends that this county has produced.
But where and more particularly who to start with? Well, firstly I’m a Aston Villa fan and have been since about 1990. The reason – one Paul McGrath. An Irish sporting icon and my personal sporting hero. So Paul was always going to be my number one but what of the other nine..?
This is a hard call as we have so many wonderful sporting icons to choose from. Katie Taylor…Brian O’Driscoll…Roy Keane the list is endless. Over the next nine weeks I hope to put together my personal nine Irish Sporting Legends, not in any particular order, just nine whom I consider the greatest. I hope you agree.
Please continue to check back in over the coming weeks to see if you agree. Feedback always welcome, and as ever, requested designs are continually welcomed!
