World Cup Illustrations for BBC Sport
Posted 1 year ago and submitted by Paul Loudon | Share link:

I was hired to create several 2018 FIFA World Cup images for BBC Sport. These pics get posted online when they become relevant. On the downside, the two images posted so far are reminders that you can’t always predict the winners.

The first one is “King Salah”; a depiction of Mohammed Salah taking his place as one of the world’s top three football players currently. The second is an image of Lionel Messi carrying the Argentina squad through the tournament. Unfortunately, neither Salah or Messi have had a great time, with Egypt out and Argentina on the brink.

I have a couple more World Cup scenarios illustrated and ready to go, hopefully they will prove more positive!

Paul Loudon created approximately 90 artworks for me for a series of children’s reading books. The brief was to create a set of characters in a naturalistic style to complement a more graphic approach within the books. We were extremely happy with the work Paul carried out and how well he hit the marks of the brief. His approach was considered and sympathetic to the series style and age-appropriate. His work was well-timed and amends were carried out promptly. I would definitely work with Paul again.
