My Richness is Life, Forever – Bob Marley
Another step into the Creative Series with Graphic Designer Zoran Lucić.
Zoran has created something beautiful, something pure. Striping away at all the greed in the world of sport and showing what’s free, just and totally pure. My richness is life, forever – Bob Marley is a creation spurred on by this thought.
The story behind it; in last few years when it comes to football I’m only listening about 50 or 100 million euro transfers, pressure on managers, sackings, rich impatient owners, incomes/sales etc. the whole beauty of modern football. There’s no joy anymore, just pure and cruel industry.
So, few days ago i’ve seen some interviews with Jurgen Klopp since taking over at Liverpool where he’s saying that football is just a game, they are not resolving any big problems. Those words and his naive, childish behaviour reminded me that football is a game, joy to watch and experience.
So i wanted to do a illustration or poster depicting that and since today’s players are just robots I could’t think better figure, situation or icon than Bob Marley playing football.
All of which is brought together with a simply background message from the legend himself.
“Football is a whole skill to itself. A whole world. A whole universe to itself. Me love it because you have to be skilful to play it! Freedom! Football is freedom.
If you want to get to know me, you will have to play football against me and the Wailers.” – Bob Marley
