Football Mishmash

(38 customer reviews)


‘Football Mishmash’ is a massive hand-drawn illustration created from over 500 famous and infamous incidents from the history of football and featuring approximately 2000 individual characters. ‘Football Mishmash’ features everything from Geoff Hurst’s goal in the 1966 World Cup Final to Rene Higuita’s incredible ‘Scorpion Kick’ for Colombia; the tragedy of the Hillsborough Disaster, to Zinedine Zidane’s notorious headbutt on Marco Materazzi in the 2006 World Cup Final; Sylvester Stallone’s penalty save in the movie Escape to Victory, to a timeline of David Beckham, and perhaps more importantly, his haircuts!   How Football Mishmash was made: Started in April 2012 & completed in February 2013, Football Mishmash took Alex Bennett approximately 1800 hours to complete.A great deal of attention was spent researching this project, ensuring football kits and clothing were as accurate as possible to picking the brains of friends to see what incidents throughout they could recall. All characters and incidents have been individually drawn. Once inked, I would scan and colour the drawing in Photoshop. I would then drag the illustration into the main image, placing it in a suitable position.

    Ideal present for any footy fan, young or old. There are already four of these with various family members and everyone agrees that the Where’s Wally? style challenge of locating the various people and incidents draws you in. Hours of entertainment and discussion for a very reasonable price.

  2. Diego A.

    #1 piece of football memorabilia EVER. The only small suggestion is that there should be a shipping station in the USA and that they should sell digital prints.

    • Alex Bennett (store manager)

      Thanks Diego! Unfortunately I am a one-man team so things like shipping from the USA might have to wait.

      I don’t offer digital prints simply because of the lack of control I would then have. It is quite common for people to print it out themselves.

  3. R.Lopez

    Fantastic! Just by skimming the artwork, you can tell Mr. Bennett is a very talented man. It would be great if football mishmash would be available in a book format, like a “where’s wally” book.Football Mishmash is Just Fantastic!

    Football Mishmash is a brilliant and unique piece of football memorabilia that I thoroughly recommend, perfect for yourself or as a gift. Even with a slight issue (out of his control) Alex sorted it perfectly!

  5. Tom

    Looks brilliant! Any chance of more club Mishmashes in the future? Premier league teams especially!

    • Alex Bennett (store manager)

      Hi Tom, yes I hope to do several more clubs soon!

  6. Samuel Hughes

    Tempted to buy one as it is really cool. But I’ve seen someone with a West Ham version of it, how can I get one?

  7. Declan

    Was wondering if you would ever do a Liverpool one?

    • Alex Bennett (store manager)

      Hi Declan, yes I hope to soon. It will quite a mammoth task!

  8. harrison black

    best bit of football memorabilia ive bought would love to see a Liverpool one

    • Alex Bennett (store manager)

      Many thanks Harrison! Yes, I plan on doing several more clubs in the near future.

  9. Anthony Poku

    Would really like to purchase the 2nd edition version. Where would i find this one?

    • Alex Bennett (store manager)

      Hi Anthony, i’m out of stock of the 1st edition so all orders made today & beyond will be the 2nd edition. Many thanks!

  10. Anthony Poku

    Yeah sorry I was referring to purchasing the 2nd edition. So if i purchase from this page i wil receive the 2nd edition?

    • Alex Bennett (store manager)

      Yes you will. Sorry if that wasn’t clear.

  11. MJC

    About to buy one for myself was wanting to know if there would be a LFC one available to but before the 1st of February for my friends birthday!

    • Alex Bennett (store manager)

      Hi, I do plan on doing more club versions. The problem is they take 6-9 months to do each one so i’m afraid February 1st deadline will be impossible! There are plenty of Liverpool moments in the Football Mishmash if that’s any good?!

  12. Keane Eastwood

    Is there any chance of a Manchester United one coming any time soon? Would be a cool gift for my dad

    • Alex Bennett (store manager)

      Hi Keane, yes I hope to do a Man Utd version soon!

  13. Rowan

    Could you do an Arsenal one

    • Alex Bennett (store manager)

      Hi Rowan, yes I plan on doing a several more club mishmashes very soon!

  14. Janis

    So,I want to buy one but,I have 2 questions.1 is there Manchester United moments comming any time soon?2 is there much Manchester United moments in this one?

    • Alex Bennett (store manager)

      Hi Janis, i’m sure I will in the future, it will certainly be busy! There are plenty of Man Utd moments in Football Mishmash, Giggs’ celebration, Cantona’s kung-fu kick, Ferguson, Busby, the Munich Memorial, Rooney, Solksjaer’s winner vs Bayern Munich to name a few! Many thanks!

  15. matt

  16. Tony

    Really good idea.But of i print it myself, will it be quite good?Will we see the things on the side?

    • Alex Bennett (store manager)

      Hi Tony, I’d like to think you’re joking. No, if you choose to print it yourself it will be very poor quality. Please buy one instead, it will look great!

  17. James McElvenney

    Looks awesome! Ordered one myself. How long does it take to arrive?

    • Alex Bennett (store manager)

      Hi James, normally I post next day, however, Spencer’s YouTube video has made it extremely busy. I’ll try & get them all out within 5 days of the order being received.
      Many thanks for your order (and patience)
