George Best Retro Illustration

For my latest poster design I decided to illustrate one of Manchester United's greatest ever players. George Best played for United between 1963 and 1974 and in that time achieved great things, most notably in 1968 where he won both the European Cup and the Ballon d'Or.

For this illustration I was inspired by old vintage advertising. Once I had the layout basics down I tried to add in lots of texture in an effort to give that aged feel. Texture is something I wouldnt usually apply to my illustrations but is something I definitely will be considering a lot more in the future.
