Welcome to my Atelier!
If you wonder how I came to this idea let me give you a glimpse of the dream.
Dream? Yes, dream! Most probably every man has that ... keeping some childhood dreams alive.
Mine was actually to build my full Subbuteo stadium to the image of my favourite club stadium: Lille.
If you haven't seen that yet, click on the picture :-)
And that is where it comes from, indeed while busy painting fans to fill in the stands, I got can of burned out painting in chain those little supporters!
My way to break the routine and keeping the work exciting was first to refresh some old Subbuteo teams of mine that had lost their original colors.
Until the day I found blank brand new players! New Subbuteo generation? You can say so! Superfooty!
Bought a couple of blank teams and started to create those teams I always wanted but did not have in my collection. Or simply making latest kits.
Lots of Subbuteo painters are those days on the market, I know. You can find the genuine stuff, such as Santiago figures vintage kits repainted, or the completely new things called decals. In between, playable modern figures recognizable enough to still identify yourself with the team on pitch ? Did not really find anything at least appealing for me. And I don't think I'm that excentric not to share my taste widely.
Therefore I decided to not only share my work but also offer it to the public.
You'll find here teams that I have done!
Don't hesitate if you like me love to replay a World cup 1/4 final Cameroon vs. England.
Enjoy the visit!
