Football Cartoons

Those of you who know me, know that I am a football fan and a travel fanatic! I also play chess for hours a day but I have a “hidden” interest and that is art. Sadly, it is watching only as I can’t draw a line and my attempts at Photoshop, Dreamweaver etc leave a lot to be desired. That said, I think I recognise talent. I have previously highlighted Papilios Creative, Gillingham Legends and Football Art Online. Obviously, I have been a huge fan of Simon Ellinas for 15 years …. about as long as he has supported the Shirt Project.

It was therefore a pleasure to meet Dave this week from Football Cartoons who I think has a real skill. He was happy for me to share some of his work and contact details. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Please feel free to check his Big Heads out on his social media sites. He reminded me that if there is anyone you would like him to draw – professional or amateur or even friends and family he will be happy to work of a photo. Enjoy!

“My names Dave 

I’m an Artist and have been so for over 30 years 

I started drawing and painting mostly fantasy art 

And in 1998 I decided to learn to draw portraits of famous people mostly football 

In 2016 I decided to have a go at drawing big heads and have mostly done this style ever since 

I also have learnt how to get my work onto merchandise ie mugs, t shirts, coasters and all sorts and I sell my merch to customers 

I currently draw football players past and present and also do person cartoons of families as required 

If your interested in buying any of my work you can contact me on Facebook @footbalcartoons or Instagram @bigheadsbydave”
