GB78 - The Protector

Upon reading the fascinating and incredibly prolific data around this superhuman football sensation, artist Shinji Akhirah started to notice a pattern of 3's that seemed to follow his career. From the Italian flag, to Juventus and his Adidas sponsorship and even extrapolated further into his lineage with his 3 wonderful kids, David, Louis and Leopoldo.

It seemed only natural that this should carry forth in the artwork. His enigmatic energy has charged millions of fans and Shinji wanted to embody that with the shield and the charge chamber. The tension and separations of the football as it spins in flux allude to the excitement and the union of fans whenever he is in the arena. It needed to feel strong yet graceful, composed yet explosive, something akin to the way he maintains calm under tremendous pressure at the highest levels.
