Kickaround magazine launched in March 2018 from the When Saturday Comes stable. The idea was for a children’s football magazine that was focussed less on celebrity and money but more on diversity, equality and the fun of the game. The ethos behind the mag is that as well as engaging visual content it can be educational (football taught me maths and geography and the importance of existential despair!). As well as the Mascot Matches strip and the History spread, I came up with an idea for a Famous Five type gang who would feature throughout the magazine on various pages and create more engagement with the reader. The samples here show some of the squad images, the skills page I also illustrate and an A1 sized illustrated World map.
