London teams

without comments

An update to last year’s GIF to include the 2015-16 season.

Info:

Not an infographic, rather an animation that uses data.

Basically, since the 1958-59 season, English football has had four top tiers. Prior to that, there were the first two divisions and two third divisions: a north division, and a south division. Since that season, of the 92 teams in those four divisions, between 11 and 14 of them have always been London-based teams.

This animation uses the places of those teams within the four tiers and the colours of those teams to create an animation. The longer a team is in a specific division, the closer to the edge of the circle that team is.

Drawing of an axolotl in the water of Lake Xochimilco, here in the south of the city. Apparently it’s possibly extinct in the wild. Drawing done only using cyan, magenta, yellow, and black.

Liverpool FC home kits, 1965-2016

without comments

An update of a thing I did last year. Unsurprisingly, the update-y bit is just the addition of next season’s kit.

Drawings of Dodger Stadium

without comments

My favourite baseball stadium, aesthetically, is Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California. I’ve only been there once, but on that visit, I arrived a couple of hours early, just so I could have a good look around, while it was relatively empty. In the last year or so, I’ve found myself, not really consciously, repeatedly drawing Dodger Stadium. I can pretty much do a stylised version of it from memory now. Here are all seven of the Dodger Stadium drawings I’ve done between January 2014 and April 2015.

Three football stadiums

without comments

There’s a craft thingy here in Mexico done by the Huichol people, where they do really beautiful stuff with beads.

I have no desire to copy what they do, but I did like the idea of trying to create a pixel style based on Huichol beadwork.

Here are three football stadiums done in that style. All stadiums in cities that I have lived in.

Estadio Azul, Mexico City:

Olympiastadion, Berlin:

Sincil Bank, Lincoln:
