We chat to David Squires on how he began following Swindon Town Football Club. How Fanzines led him down the path of football illustration and how he ended up creating the Mascots Rockin Robbin (Swindon Town) and Herbie the Hammer (West Ham United).
 
After falling into the 9-5 grind of life and moving to Australia, Squires begun to pick up a cult following after putting some of his drawings up on the net. This work continued featuring the humourous side of football with the humourous side of football with the The Guardian in the UK (Premier League) and Australia (Hyundai A-League). Finally we hear from Squires on the process for his new book - 'The Illustrated History of Football' (Buy it!).
