World Cup '74 Portrait #194 (Kalambay Otep'a: Zaire)

graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm

The most recent randomly-chosen subject to be re-mediated in the form of drawing is an image of Kalambay Otepa (correctly without the apostrophe, it seems), who was represented in the FKS ‘Wonderful World of Soccer Stars World Cup 1974’ sticker album & chosen as a member of the official Zaire squad for the Finals, but subsequently was the only one of the 3 goalkeepers in the selection not to take the field of play during the tournament.
