During the summer of 2010, I was inspired by the World Cup in South Africa to create a team of my own and tell their story. During the time I was working as an intern and on my off-time I began storyboarding my idea. I came up with a cast of characters from a country I made up and finished it within a couple of weeks.
Basically it is about a rag-tag soccer team from a Central Asian country who go to Europe for one exhibition match and what happens to them.
It was not until the summer of 2011 that I actually got around to drawing and inking the pages. I scanned them in and did touch-ups and corrections with Photoshop. I then designed a cover and book jacket and assembled it all together in InDesign and printed and bound it into a book.
