100 Days of Making Comics, Street Soccer


#1

So Miqque told me to post about this the other day. So I finally got round to it, many of you will remember me from the board a while back and many of you are friends of mine on Facebook.

About a year into joining the boards I got involved in Football (Soccer) coaching, then I got into Street Soccer coaching and posted a few videos on the Pub forum. Recently I undertook and completed a new challenge, some of you will have seen me post links on my Facebook.

I actually got the idea of doing this challenge from friends of The Art casters group I’m part of FB. It was created by a former comic artist Jeff Lafferty, we post art videos there, our work and art hangouts. I’ve featured on a few of Jeff’s daily hangouts. But several of the guys within the board took up a 100 days of making comics challenge, the challenge in which I then adapted for my own cause (more on that to follow.)

I wanted to help raise awareness of these guys to this community, some of you may have come across them both in reading format or even seen the videos but I hope some of you will now take a little interest in their work or videos at least.

The creator (or adaptor) of the Comics challenge is Kevin Cross, he’s currently on his second series.

From there I adapted the challenge to undertake 100 days of Street Soccer Skills Development. I followed a very similar format as the guys above.

Each day I would train for a minimum of 30 minutes a day and make a video to document my progress. I started the challenge for the pure reason that my training had gone stale and I wanted to get back to regular training.

The challenge significantly change me in many ways, for one I’m physically fitter, but more importantly it changed my mindset I was in a very negative slump at the point I undertook the challenge. I’ve completely changed over that period and I feel highly positive and highly motivated to continue working and developing on the sport I love. A couple of cool things happened a long the way and since the challenge. A significant one was I got to train, coach and play against and alongside one of the pioneers of my sport.

I hope you enjoy the links I’ve posted there are others doing the Making Comics challenge too.

Tom Raney seems to be doing the 100-Day Comics challenge, as does me darlin’ Nicola Scott. Follow them on FB!

This street soccer is just nuts. Parkour with a ball!

Learned a lot from this, Kieran. Thank you!

Cheers Miqque. I learnt a lot with challenge also, yeah the moves can be crazy and fast. You should check football freestylers too some of those guys really push the realms of creativity with a ball.

It’s nice to hear others have taken on the challenge? especially other professional comic artists. I know there are a few others from that group who are doing it or have done it as well.
