This section is designed to collate some of the many artworks available on the internet which feature Huddersfield Town.
Paine Proffitt is an American-born artist living in England, best known for his sporting works and for his depiction of ‘the working-man’s life’. He has created hundreds of football-based ‘retro’ scenes for numerous clubs and you can visit his amazing website by clicking HERE.
These are the Town images that he has created thus far; I have no doubt that you will be impressed!
Ali White is a full-time photographic artist who is based in Huddersfield. Prints of all of his work are available to buy from the AC Gallery in Huddersfield. His work very strongly features views of Huddersfield in general but it also specifically includes the three images of the Town ground shown here. I can personally recommend the one of the view down the ground from the South Stand (top) as I have this hanging proudly on my staircase. The original of the elongated picture (middle), ‘The Galpharm Stadium By Night’, measures 3m x 1m and actually hangs in the inner reception area at the Town stadium.
EBAY ‘PENCIL SKETCHES’
There is a particular seller – crouchingtiger2008 – who offers many Town players on prints like the ones shown below at very reasonable prices. They are lovely items although I seriously doubt that they are actually hand-drawn (see my effort below). You will find his items for sale HERE.
And here’s mine, just to show that with the right software, it’s not that difficult
Johnny runs the THRICE CHAMPIONS BLOG which is filled with his very clever artwork. Examples include the ‘virtual stickers’ shown here (and more on my 2014 section) along with some scintillating, easily identifiable figures.
Johnny has also worked hard to redesign certain aspects of the club logo and branding, etc. with some amazing results. I’ll only include one here; you really need to explore his blog to see just how clever this chap really is!
In May 2017 HTAFC made available in the Club Shop and also online copies of this canvas produced by Nigel Cooke. Four options were available for fans to purchase starting with the small framed picture (43cm by 43cm) for £45; a medium frame (53cm by 53cm) for £70; a large frame (84cm by 84cm) for £175 or a canvas of the image (80cm by 80cm) for £115.
The original image created by Cooke was painted after Town’s 2-1 win over Leeds United in February to mark the special relationship and celebrations between the Terriers supporters and David Wagner’s First Team squad, whilst also paying tribute to those in the Chadwick Lawrence Cowshed. All variations of the print were signed by the artist and came with a certificate of authenticity.
Personally , I think that it’s horrible.
