World Cup '74 Portrait #4 (Dragan Holcer: Yugoslavia)


Today’s random choice of subject for the drawing project is Dragan Holcer, who didn’t actually make the cut for the official Yugoslavia 1974 World Cup squad, but nonetheless was selected to make an appearance in the FKS ‘Wonderful World of Soccer Stars World Cup 1974 stamp album, representing the country for whom he (had) played on 52 occasions up to 1974, which, hauntologically, has proved sufficient honour to ensure the name survives, however tenuous, ghostly (coincidentally appropriately, given the bleached nature of the image quality of the enlarged photocopy from which the drawing was processed as immediate reference), the connection to the tournament.
