art/history: third time lucky? i've tried to draw my favourite footballer a few times & have always failed. this human deserves every talent i can muster & it seems i'm not up to the challenge. played fast & loose with this portrait of the sporting philosopher. yes, he has a philosopher's heart. the only reason that people took the piss out of the 'trawler theory' is that they didn't understand. it always made perfect sense to me: the media will do whatever it takes to get print. this & his racist bashing have forever endeared eric cantona (born #otd in 1966) to me & millions of others. he gave manchester united a touch of class that they've not experienced since. did you see his plaintive message to the city after the bombing? that.
