The drawing was a collaboration between Keegan and the Seattle Sounders organization, and is a stunning representation of the best 11 players in Seattle Sounders history, as voted by the fans. Each player is depicted in intricate detail, overlapping one another to create a dynamic composition.
Keegan’s use of shading and texture is impressive, bringing each player to life on the page. The players’ expressions are also captured in great detail including intense concentration and confident poses. The background of the drawing is completely white, allowing the viewer to focus solely on the players and make them the focal point of the piece.
Overall, the drawing is a testament to the skill of both the artist and the players depicted, making it a must-see for any Seattle Sounders fan.
I teamed up with the Sounders to create a limited-edition print of the team’s All-Time Best XI in the MLS era.
Over 57,000 submissions from supporters, media, club stakeholders and the Alliance Council culminated in the Best XI reveal on July 11, with club icons like Fredy Montero and DeAndre Yedlin joining current stalwarts like Nicolás Lodeiro and Stefan Frei.
The Best XI prints were given away to 20,000 supporters on MLS Decision Day, when the Sounders hosted Minnesota United on October 6, 2019.
