The Story of the Island Games Book

My love for soccer and illustrations brought me to work with the CPL (Canadian Premier League) to create “The Story of the Island Games,” a coffee table book recounting the 2020 CPL season.

I started drawing sketches of goals from the Island Games 2020 and presented them on my Instagram and Twitter pages as a way to harken back to my youth spent reading football magazines with goal reactions sketched out on glossy paper. The reaction was very good and surprising from fans and players, so I kept going and eventually committed to drawing almost 100 goals at the Island Games.

“A UNIQUE SOUVENIR FOR A HISTORIC SEASON, told through a combination of powerful illustration, photography and design, The Story of the Island Games is a unique piece of Canadian Premier League history. This beautiful 177-page coffee table book takes fans through the remarkable sophomore season of the Canadian Premier League which was set against incredibly challenging conditions. Explore a season like no other.” Canpl.ca
