As I’m constantly in the pursuit of new content, I wanted to revisit an “oldie but goodie”. Back in 2009, one of my most popular pieces was of a goalie, titled “The Guardian”. The next year, I decided to make another version titled “The Guardian 2″. It did alright. This year, I decided to make another version, as well, and see how it would go.
Looking at the new piece, I wanted to capture the goalie being stubborn and defiant in his body language. Instead of having the figure make a save, or direct traffic in front of him, I thought that the “observance” of the field was enough. As a goalie, myself, I feel that I have the best “seat in the house” and that the field is my “kingdom”, sort-of-speak.
