Eleven drawings of eleven teams from every World Cup between 1970 and 2010. Over the next couple of months, we will see a lot of pictures and clips of the Brazils, Argentinas, Germanys, Italys; great teams from the history of the World Cup. What we will likely see less of is teams that were alright, pretty good, or a bit rubbish. These eleven drawings are of those teams.

Peru, 1970. Came second in their group, lost 4-2 in the quarters to eventual champions Brazil.

Scotland, 1974. Failed to get out of their group, despite have the same wins, draws, and losses as Yugoslavia and Brazil, who both progressed on goal difference.

Mexico, 1978. Lost all three of their group games.

England, 1982. Won all three of their group games, and drew both of their second round group games, thus failing to progress due to West Germany beating Spain in the other game.

Denmark, 1986. Great kit. Won all their group games, then battered 5-1 by Spain in the Round of 16.

Cameroon, 1990. Topped their group, beat Colombia in the Round of 16, and narrowly lost to England in the quarter finals, losing 3-2 after extra time.

Colombia, 1994. Lost all two of their group games. Tragically, Andrés Escobar scored an own goal in their 2-1 defeat by the USA, and was murdered back in Colombia two weeks later.

Romania, 1998. Won their group, lost 1-0 to Croatia in their Round of 16 game.

Nigeria, 2002. Winless in their group, losing to Argentina and Sweden, and drawing with England.

Trinidad and Tobago, 2006. The smallest nation to ever qualify for the World Cup, Trinidad and Tobago came bottom of their group, losing to England and Paraguay after a scoreless draw against Sweden.

Japan, 2010. Lost on penalties in the Round of 16 to Paraguay.

Anyway, you can see ‘em all here: http://flipflopflyin.com/partakers/index.html

Drawings of baseball things

without comments

I think I mentioned this before, that I’m doing a weekly drawing — let’s go ahead and call it “art,” eh? — for a baseball Web site called NotGraphs. You can see an archive of my work here: http://www.fangraphs.com/not/author/craig-robinson/

The most recent one may be of interest, though, even if you don’t like rounders. It’s more about the process of drawing than baseball itself. That post is here.

Self-portrait, drinking Guinness and drawing in the Tap and Spile pub in Lincoln. This is drawn from memory so the colours and stuff might be a bit off, should you know he pub in question.

Like Abba said, I had a dream

without comments

They say other peoples’ dreams are boring. But I would also suggest that they are also boring. Saying other peoples’ dreams are boring is boring. Not sure that entirely means we’ve come around to dreams being interesting again, but, well, er, this post is about a dream I had a while back.

I’d read a story on a news Web site about the Queen (that is, the Queen, Queen Elizabeth II) running out of money or something. Boo hoo. And I ended up dreaming about that and the way the BBC is always getting shit from the Daily fucking Mail about anything they feel they can stick the boot in about. So in the dream, the Queen was given a chat show on BBC One, to, y’know, earn her keep. In my dream, she was interviewing famous British people. And the first interview was with Robert Smith. Him out of the Cure.

Here’s a drawing.

So, as I mentioned, I had an exhibition at the Euphoric Trumps in London. Here’s some photos.

As well as the printed stuff, I drew with a marker on glass:
