Got, Got, Got Need
To raise money for his local hospital, illustrator Elliott Quince is producing 32 handpainted portraits of players in the forthcoming World Cup, all in the style of football stickers
Remember the Fussball Helden book produced in time for the last World Cup? Quince's Got, Got, Got Need project is in similar vein, the big difference being that he has painted a portrait of a player from each team, all of which will be sold to benefit the Neonatal Unit at Luton and Dunstable Hospital which cared for Quince's daughter last year.
Quince's subjects include Wayne Rooney (top, looking particularly handsome), Lionel Messi
Nemanja Vidic of Serbia
Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal
and Stephen Pienaar of hosts South Africa
From June 10, for the duration of the tournament, all 32 will be displayed at The Offside Bar and Gallery in Islington. All will be for sale (if you'd like to buy one, you can register your interest via this website).

Thanks for putting Got, got, got, need! on the blog – it really means a lot and it's all for a great cause.
Love it. You have a great drawing style.
Great idea, lovely style, just have to crack open the piggy bank!
QUINCE! You media slag ;-) Really great to see this stuff on here. And brilliant for the Hospital cause.
All the very best with this exhibition, a few of us from BMB are off on a 'school trip' for the launch night.
P.S. I think you still owe me a beer.
This brings back alot of memories of primary school. Brilliant idea for a great cause.
Love you QUINCE!
will look out for the all whites sicker!
A printed series that is truly a dream team in it's own right.
Man-of-the-match award goes to Elliott Quince!
Well played sir! ;)
Can you do a special shiny one like they had when I used to collect football stickers?
