Art of Football have forged themselves a well-earned reputation for quality over the past year or two, principally for their rather excellent splotchy t-shirts and prints.
With things continuing to go from strength to strength for the Nottingham-based collective, the Art of Football chaps have gone big to celebrate their four-year anniversary by creating their very first animated short film – which they call a “love letter” to the beautiful game.
A full 18 months in the making, the mini-movie is comprised of 1,600 hand-drawn images, induced no less than three nervous breakdowns, and covers an entire cavalcade of the various special moments that have taken their place in the football pantheon over they years, all spliced together.
They even managed to get Martin Tyler on board to commentate over the whole thing, which is pretty darn impressive in and of itself…
How great was that?
Very great, is the answer you’re looking for!
Here’s to the next four years, chaps. Best of luck.
