As I sit here writing this England are meandering there way through their third and final game at what has been a very short world cup.
Once again we all fell into the same false hope, maybe this year would be our year? But alas one Mario Balotelli and one Luis Suarez saw to that.
So you may be thinking our interest here at Akute has piqued well let me tell you. You couldn’t be more wrong; the action is just starting and the knock out stages is where the excitement really begins, plus there is the art work of Cal Gildart.
The Manchester born but now Essex based artist started working on a set of retro World Cup prints but is now commemorating special moments from this world cup like Robin Van Persie’s swan dive.
Another of our favourites is the classic image of Bobby Moore holding the Jules Rimet aloft, now immortalised in Cal’s distinctive print style.
You can find more of Cal’s work over at the Calcio Retrospective Facebook page. So go have a browse and let us know what you like.
