If you have even the vaguest interest in football, you’ll know that Sutton United meet Arsenal in the 5th round of the FA Cup this evening. Sutton United are based a couple of miles from my home, and over the weekend I responded to a suggestion to make an extra free art drop to commemorate the occasion. Inspiration took a while to strike, and as I sat staring at the club crest, it finally hit me.
I chose to reference the two keys and the gold and silver discs on which they are placed.
Tools at the ready, I began to draw. Ink and paint flowed, gold and silver leaf was pasted, and here’s where I ended up. As you can see I made two versions of the art work – and these will be placed somewhere in Sutton later today. Finders keepers.
