Awesome design football South Africa 2010

 I discovered these fantastic designs by tsevis at Flickr when I was doing a search in google images for another post. This is the one and only Essien. I love how he had incorporated Kente patterns into his mosaic. This really looks like Ghana feels: vibrant, jagged and heading every which way. I'm not quite sure about Essien's face here, but the design is fantastic.

These are all from the series South Africa 2010. This is Mr D. Drogba-who else? Tsevis describes this: "Experimental mosaic portrait of Didier Drogba for the World Cup 2010 in South Africa. Studying the great African patterns tradition and experimenting with a limited color palette. This illustration is made with just 11 colors."

 This is a Liberian woman. "Experimental mosaic portrait of a smiling Liberian girl. Working with stars and stripes again as well as with more traditional African colors."

I think this is my favourite. I love the blend of earthy, African colours, the patterns and the pose. "Experimental mosaic portrait of the Cameroonian footballer Alexandre Dimitri Song Billong for the World Cup 2010 in South Africa. Studying the great African patterns tradition."

Tsevis describes this image: "Mosaic portrait of Djibril Cissé, the French footballer of Ivorian descent who is making every Panathinaikos FC fan happy. I am wishing Djibril to be recalled to the French National team and play in South Africa's World Cup 2010."

There is a lot of beautiful and inspiring work in his collections for the web and magazines and all sorts of things on a huge range of subjects like ballet, technology, art, social media, and so on. Check out Tsevis's photostream at Flickr.
