Your mind has to squint when appreciating John Terry. It’s like ‘oh I can admire that bit, but not that, or that’. He is a multifaceted public personality who represents something different to all who see him. For some he is the persistent England captain, for others a model professional in regard to work standard and consistency. Supporters of Chelsea see him as their brave captain, a legend and a leader. For others still he is a philanderer, and a racist. Those who know him closely say what an astoundingly nice guy he is. All these conflicting stories about the man make me think it is near impossible to get a true sense of him. Any drawing I was going to do had to somehow contain the conflict of good and bad potential. I’ve tied up his role as captain in how he is seen by his fans whilst giving him an expression not common to those depicted with a halo above their heads. It’s a collision of conflicting images of the same man, which I think is as close as I could get.
