Various Footballs

(also known as soccer balls)

At the start of 2020 I started making footballs.

It started out as something to keep myself busy during lockdown, but it slowly morphed into some sort of hobby? Whatever it is it’s slowly taking over my apartment.

Football Maker Alpha 0.1

Pictured above is Football Maker, Alpha 0.1. It's like MS Paint, but for designing footballs.

It makes it possible to create much more intricate designs.

The only real limitation I have now is sourcing the materials.

I post work in progress pictures on Instagram, so consider following me over there.

Do you have a suggestion for an interesting material or ball theme? If so, please let me know!
