2014 World Cup Sketches: Germany v. Ghana

Wow, after a super boring first half the second half was ON FIRE. I always cheer Germany, but Ghana wanted this and played a really good game. They wanted it bad–I was disappointed with how Germany played at first, none of the swift organized teamwork that I saw in 2010. It seemed like they were so non-athletic compared to Ghana. I loved the strut! You earned it, lads! That German keeper was ticked.

Frankfurt, Germany: revisited

Another take on the Frankfurt illustration from a few months back. The original version lacked a few places of interest that the publisher wanted highlighted, in addition to some extra locations that really could have been left out. This second version was decided against once the time and cost of re-doing the work proved to be more than ideal. So I finished it anyway and am pleased with the simpler look and gentle colors of it! Turnaround time was 2 days.
