To raise money for his local hospital, illustrator Elliott Quince is producing 32 handpainted portraits of players in the forthcoming World Cup, all in the style of football stickers
Remember the Fussball Helden book produced in time for the last World Cup? Quince’s Got, Got, Got Need project is in similar vein, the big difference being that he has painted a portrait of a player from each team, all of which will be sold to benefit the Neonatal Unit at Luton and Dunstable Hospital which cared for Quince’s daughter last year.
Quince’s subjects include Wayne Rooney (top, looking particularly handsome), Lionel Messi
Nemanja Vidic of Serbia
Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal
and Stephen Pienaar of hosts South Africa
From June 10, for the duration of the tournament, all 32 will be displayed at The Offside Bar and Gallery in Islington. All will be for sale (if you’d like to buy one, you can register your interest via this website).
