The Fab Four for BBC Sport
Posted 2 months ago and submitted by Paul Loudon | Share link:

I was asked to create this “Fab Four” image for BBC Sport and the Champions League Final. It depicts the four Liverpool managers that have won over the years. So, from left to right: Bob Paisley – who brought the team to victory in 1977, 78 and 81. Joe Fagan – 1984. Raphael Benitez – 2005. Jurgen Klopp – 2019.

This was a bit of a big deal for me because it was really high profile, with Liverpool legends such as Jamie Carragher using this image as his Twitter banner.

Obviously this is also a reference to The Beatles’ Abbey road album, featuring songs such as “I want You (she’s So Heavy)” and “Carry That Weight”.

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.
