As a big Liverpool fan I almost left it too late with this new Jurgen Klopp portrait. The portrait celebrates LFC's record breaking 2017/18 Champions League campaign and their stunning journey to the final in Kiev - and was finished just 18 hours before kick off. This season has been filled with some truly magical football for LFC fans, all under the guidance of the charismatic and forever entertaining Klopp, and whilst the Champions League final result wasn't what LFC fans had wished for, it was a brilliant effort nonetheless. With this portrait I wanted Klopp in happy spirits (no angry gurning here!) and a collaged element that elevated it beyond a straight illustration. It took awhile to find the right source photo, but eventually I found one that captured Klopp's magnetic personality perfectly and had a nice clarity to it. I followed a well-used process when creating it, illustrating Klopps head first before working on the scarf and then finally the collaged jacket (and picking the right LFC green for the background). Everything came together over a few late nights and I'm chuffed with the end result. A3 prints of the portrait are also available in a white 20 x 16" mount and/or framed in a 20 x 16" black frame.
