I was commissioned by the fantastic football publication, Mundial, to create a very unusual digital painting for the magazine's front cover. To represent one of the main articles in the magazine I was challenged with combining portraits of a young and old Francesco Totti along with Caravaggio's 'David with the Head of Goliath' baroque masterpiece. This was not only an amazing brief, but one that I was extremely interested in on a personal level as I specialised in Baroque art and the works of Caravaggio during my Art History Masters and time spent studying at the British Institute of Florence. This combined with my love of football meant it was the perfect commission to receive and one I thoroughly enjoyed creating.
'Young Totti with the Head of Old Totti' was painted using Artrage desktop programme on the Surface Pro 3 tablet.
