Roberto Baggio Comic

Recently finished a cracking commission from the guys at Pro:Direct – a Roberto Baggio illustrated comic, to help launch Diadora’s new Baggio ‘Matchwinner’ football boots. Began with a dramatic front cover of Roberto in classic Azzurri colours…

Brilliant job, & I loved doing it, but that was only half of it, because my wife & I were also invited to the launch event. There were printed copies of Baggio comics all round the store…

the in-store graphics & interactive touch screens were also based on the comic illustrations…

Football Italia TV presenter James Richardson hosted an entertaining Q & A session in front of a packed out audience…

and then the best bit, I got to present the man himself with a framed print – which he graciously accepted – whether he actually liked it or not!

Had a fantastic time from start to finish, with massive thanks to Scott & Ned at Pro:Direct
