ABOUT THE ART
This one doesn’t need much explanation, i knew i wanted to incorporate the iconic CCCP lettering and a nickname like ‘The Black Octopus’ just lends itself to this kind of characterisation, so it wasn’t too difficult to imagine how it was going to turn out.
The colour palette is meant to reflect Yashin’s famous black jersey fading into Octopus ink squirts, the contrast of the white CCCP lettering and Russian red of course.
