If you’re a football fan and also happen to love art, I bet you’ll be even more excited for this concept cover for the September issue of Four Four Two. For those of you who don’t know what’s Four Four Two, today you’ll be intrigued about these magazines. Four Four Two is one of the most famous UK based football magazines out. They publish new issues monthly that includes fresh news, rumors, rankings interviews, and even art.

I’ve bought these issues as a kid, but have never seen an artsy cover like this concept designed by Sakiroo Choi. The mentioned artist is a South Korean illustrator and character designer, born in Bucheon, South Korea. Besides his love for art, Choi’s caricatures have been featured in over ten countries. He has even worked for prestigious firms like ESPN, Facebook, and Four Four Two. Choi and I have a lot in common. We both like soccer and also happen to be fans of the best league in the world: ‘the English premier league.

His concept for the Four Four Two September magazine cover for includes the main figures of the premier league. Since the league just started, Choi thought it would be fun to captivate others with his caricature soccer players on the front cover. He illustrated five soccer players (Firmino, De Bruyne, Pogba, Morata, Son, and Lacazette). His work is often exaggerated, but with a sense of humor. For his illustration, he combines a little of both manga and anime style. These characters are surrounded by an explosive background of shapes and vibrant colors. The cover is striking and I would definitely buy this magazine with this concept as the cover. Would you buy this magazine if it was on the cover?
