Hi Cameron - quick questions for you:

* Are the players (and manager) based on actual people - if so do you remember which ones?
* What happened to the left leg of the main guy? :)
* Did you do any of the other cover illustrations for the kickoff games?

Hi,

* Yes the illustrations are of actual players and a manager. Who though, I can't remember (It was 26 years ago...)

* The main guy was the only professional player with one leg shorter than the other in the early 90's :D

* I did all of the illustrations for the Kick Off and Player Manager range including the data disks. Unfortunately I haven't a clue what happened to them....

The answer can be found on this forum.

Somewhere!

Don't think we came to a solid conclusion about the manager though.

Well, it looks like Stainy had a go at it, but didn't meet the reserve at £25 (+£20 postage!!)

Reserve prices suck :roll:, it always puts me off bidding.

So Cameron, what happens now with your artwork now?

I reckon the player standing up about to take the shot is a former Crystal Palace player...Andy Gray (not the Sky commentator) possibly?

The coach looks like former Birmingham City manager Terry Cooper. Incidently, he looks a little too 'excited' lol

I`ll be getting it this week! soon as I get it I`ll post :)


The guy who drew it did all of Anco`s games... shame he never kept them all ( he said he only kept KO2 because it was such a huge game )
