Chris Edser animates the World Cup

One of the joys of this World Cup has been having  the talented Chris Edser animate the highs and lows of the competition (in perfect .gif form).

  • Illustrations: Chris Edser for Eurosport

The series of animations was commissioned by Eurosport for their suite of websites across the continent. We loved Tim Cahill’s goal – of course – and also had a wee chortle at Brazil’s misfortunes. A fantastic gig like this is becoming something of a regular thing for Chris, whose work you might have seen previously for The Beards. Tune into SBS One this Monday for the real life finale and, no doubt, shortly after – Chris’ take on the result.


Follow Chris on Facebook for links to all his work and the the .gifs he’s done to date!

Also: below are jpeg only as Eursport owns the rights to Chris’ work until the final whistle is blown. Check back in with us after the World Cup when Chris can share the full series of .gif goodness and his process as a worldly animator type!
