We recently highlighted the terrific work of Roy of the Rovers artist David Sque in our review of The Rise of the Invincibles, the graphic novel account of the early days of Preston North End.

Now, David is working on a new project – Famous British Football Clubs – producing  a series of his unique comic art for a number of British football  clubs.

The prints are limited to just 50 copies and each copy is signed, numbered and dated by the artist, who these days lives in Spain.

The prints are being produced by Ryehill Football and offer a unique perspective on some of the most famous clubs in British football.

Released with the support of the club itself, now available is a Sunderland AFC print, commemorating The Black Cats winning the football league in 1936 and shows local hero Raich Carter scoring at the Roker End.

Costing £25.99 each, the art prints are A3 size 29.7 x 42 cm and the number of copies is limited to just 50 per club.

They are sure to be highly prized not just by football fans,  but also by people who follow Sque and his iconic Roy Of The Rovers artwork.

Teaming up with the finest artists in the UK Ryehill Football are planning to produce a range of  limited edition art prints, signed and numbered by the artist themselves, for a number of football clubs.

The series will include Manchester United, Liverpool, Rangers, Celtic, Newcastle United, Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United, Everton, Hibs, Aston Villa and Leeds United.
