JOHAN CRUYFF, REVOLUTIONARY.

After last week's sad news of Johan Cruyff's passing I wanted to do an illustration that showed how the man could make the exceptional seem effortless and almost pedestrian. I also fit it into an editorial context after reading some great articles detailing his fantastic skill and depths of experience.

OPEN FOR BUSINESS!

John Alan Birch's online shop is officially open for business! I'd like to congratulate Steven Learmonth who won the Bigfoot print giveaway.

Sorry to those who didn't win this print but you'll be happy to know that the first 10 orders in the online shop will receive a free skull mini print in red or black.

Finally I do only have limited amounts of t-shirts at the moment, if you are unable to get your size at this time please let me know and I can factor this in the next time I do a print run.

NEW WEBSITE

It's cold out there so it seemed like the perfect time to put some ink to some paper and t-shirts, draw some dead stuff, do some technical website things and make 2016 the year of illustration. Keep an eye out for a shop coming soon! Sasquatch print and t-shirt inspired by this tiny print from 2014.
