World Cup '74 Portrait #206 (Julio Cesar Gimenez: Uruguay)

graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm

This, the Project’s most recent drawing features a re-mediation of one Julio César Jiménez, who was represented upon a sticker – erroneously as ‘Gimenez’ - in the FKS ‘Wonderful World of Soccer Stars World Cup 1974’ commemorative album & then was chosen as a member of the official Uruguay squad for the Finals where, alas, he was not selected to make an appearance on the field of play in any of the Uruguayans’ three First Round matches, after which, bottom of their group with but a single point, they departed the tournament, without making the slightest impression upon my consciousness at the time.
