Chester Holme’s football-themed illustrations make the crowd go wild

Illustrator Chester Holme feels at home when it comes to drawing sport and, more specifically, football. His portfolio is a rich mix of reds, blues and greens and is full of illustrations relating to the beautiful game. Highlights include an A1 football print of Gazzas for Group Stage an exhibition at Patterns of Play in London this month and a couple of spot illustrations for Season Annual a new publication dedicated to the Premier League by three passionate designers. 

A graduate of Kingston University, Chester’s also created work for Pickles magazine, Lok Zine, and the Royal Opera House. Still early in his career, it’s great to see his portfolio chock-full of personal projects like his film posters and speculative illustrations. His saturated, colour-block style suits his full-bleed crowd shots and posters well and the character variations and expressions in these busy illustrations keep the audience interested.
