Recently finished this storyboard design capturing the exact second Sergio Aguero scored that dramatic 94th minute goal as Manchester City became 2012 Premier League Champions.


Here’s the finished artwork below…


The action unfolds second by second, beginning with Aguero’s one-two with Mario Balotelli, the shot blasting past QPR keeper Paddy Kenny, followed by ecstatic celebrations (including jubilant City manager Roberto Mancini), and finishing with captain Vincent Kompany proudly lifting the Premier League trophy.

Ahead of tonight’s Liverpool v Roma Champions League semi-final, here’s a new print marking the ‘Miracle of Istanbul’, when Steven Gerrard inspired Liverpool’s incredible victory over Milan in the 2005 Champions League Final.


Both teams are pictured in front of the Ataturk Stadium, with it’s striking curved roof. The main stand is awash with Liverpool flags & banners, and Istanbul’s distinctive skyline in the background.


The Liverpool starting line-up includes captain fantastic Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, Xabi Alonso & goalkeeping hero Jerzy Dudek, while the Milan team includes Paolo Maldini, Andrea Pirlo, Kaka, and Andriy Shevchenko.


There’s an info panel at the bottom containing the full Liverpool & Milan starting line-ups plus the match stats.

This brings the recent Coventry City artwork up to date. 30 years on from their historic FA Cup win in 1987, the Sky Blues returned to Wembley to win the EFL Checkatrade Trophy Final, beating Oxford Utd 2-1.


So I drew winning goalscorer George Thomas in front, next come Gael Bigirimana who scored Coventry’s first goal, and heroic keeper Lee Burge, and behind them all captain Jordan Willis lifts the trophy…


Titled the print ‘Spirit of ’87’ after seeing lots of Coventry flags & banners at the game. Here’s the full artwork…

This drawing tells the story of the greatest day in Coventry City’s history, when the Sky Blues beat Tottenham Hotspur, in the 1987 Wembley FA Cup Final. The headline was inspired by the Coventry Cup Final Song, not bad as footy songs go I reckon! (Thanks to Covonthebox!)


Story begins with manager John Sillet leading the Sky Blues out at Wembley. Despite Spurs being hot favourites, boasting Glenn Hoddle, Chris Waddle & Ossie Ardiles in their side, Coventry ran out well deserved winners, 3-2 after extra time. Action concentrates on the 3 Coventry goals, beginning with Dave Bennett, scorer of the first equaliser top right…


moving on to Keith Houchen’s iconic diving header, one of Wembley’s most spectacular FA Cup goals, which levelled the score at 2-2…


followed by Gary Mabbutt’s own goal in extra time. Final frame shows triumphant Sky Blues skipper Brian Kilcline lifting the famous old trophy, flanked by Cyrille Regis & keeper Steve Ogrizovic.

Here’s one of Wembley’s greatest ever Cup Final goals – Keith Houchen’s iconic diving header for Coventry City against Spurs in the 1987 FA Cup Final. Decided to crank the action right up, as befits such a magnificent goal…


Began with this pen & brush drawing, before adding digital colour…


Drawn Keith Houchen in mid-air diving towards us, from a low viewpoint behind Spurs keeper Ray Clemence, which helps add drama…


Also used speech bubbles & typography to help the action along. That’s Coventry’s Micky Gynn & Cyrille Regis, in the background, and Spurs defender Chris Hughton on the far right…

Thought hard about this print. I wanted to illustrate Jimmy in characteristic dribbling action  – ball on his toe & perfectly balanced to spin either way – so that became the main image…


but I also wanted to show him beating defenders tackles, shooting for goal, and celebrating a goal, so they became small vignettes…


Decided to draw Jimmy with socks around his ankles, like he’s been buzzing around all game. Also added some of the trophies Jimmy won at Celtic – he won many more but I ran out of room!

Last thing was to add Jimmy’s own words, “I was always an entertainer. The pitch was my stage, the whistle meant it was showtime,” which sums him up perfectly.
