World Cup '74 Portrait #222 (Jan Olsson (2): Sweden)

graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm

Today’s addition to the drawing Project is a re-mediation of an image of another Jan Olsson, who was represented in the FKS ‘Wonderful World of Soccer Stars World Cup 1974’ sticker album but, unlike his namesake, was not selected for inclusion in the official Sweden squad for the Finals, thus being one of those ghosts whose only presence in relation to the tournament was, & remains, via such items of memorabilia as the sticker albums upon which this project is founded.
