The best thing football provides is melodrama, an excuse in an increasingly cynical and coolly unimpressed world to revel in glory, failure, trump and disaster. It’s why the highlight of any major tournament is the England-knocked-out-montage a collection of heart rending clips set to something mournful by a band like Embrace.
Illustrator Lee has certainly got into the spriti of things with his evolving project “15 Nations Fall” which documents the destructions of different nations’ crests as they are eliminated from Euro 2012. But this is much more than just a clever idea with some lovely illustrative touches on display – I particularly like the fallen Russian eagle and the Swedish badge which looks like it’s been roughed up.
Scroll down to see the before and after images of the crests and, if you’re English, keep your fingers crossed that our sad three lions stay off the site for a few more days.
