Chicago Bulls' Luol Deng is subject of animation


Richard Swarbrick, the London artist who became an overnight success after dazzling soccer fans with his Gareth Bale and El Clasico animations on YouTube, is back with a new project.

For the first time, Swarbrick has taken on an American sport, albeit with an English twist. His newest subject is the NBA, and in particular, Luol Deng of the Chicago Bulls.

"I chose Deng because he will be playing for Great Britain in the London Olympics," Swarbrick told Page 2. "We've edited the film to the song 'Walking in the Air' which was used in the classic Christmas film 'The Snowman.'"
