Season is an annual book celebrating the Premier League, similar to a Match annual from when we were younger, but making it more sophisticated and designed beautifully. I was asked by Season Annual to illustrate a player of the week and moment of the week.
The player of the week was Dele Alli who scored in a 2-0 victory over then league leaders Manchester City at White Hart Lane. The moment of the week went to Arsene Wenger who was celebrating 20 years at Arsenal.
For Dele Alli I wanted to create a graphic that portrayed his explosive style of play and the explosive result which was Manchester City’s first defeat under Pep Guardiola after a great start to the season.
The Arsene Wenger illustration is all about celebrating the man that has become Mr Arsenal, with his success and also his legacy, from Highbury to the Emirates, from Tony Adams to Alexis Sanchez and a lot of great players in-between. Winning three Premier League titles, six FA Cups and six Charity/Community Shields.
