In the way that sometimes films get novelised, this is an old illustration that’s been paintingised [barks at PA – “Get that word copyrighted NOW!”]. Or is it called reverse engineering? Anyway, the original was drawn in Flash then exported to (drones on for hours about technical details) and appeared in a fancy When Saturday Comes calendar for the start of 2004.
For this painted version I’ve used my scratchy technique on the underpainting in an attempt to replicate the effect of Sepp Maier’s hair.
