It looks like we’re not the only one obsessing over Andy Murray‘s hair (let us count the ways): in celebration of the Scot gaining a spot in the last men’s event of the year — the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals — the tour created a stencil that Andy used for his artball self-portrait. Thankfully, they used a photo of him well-groomed. (See: Stencils for Roger, Rafa, and the one for Nole.)
Muzz on creating the art: “I can’t say I’ve ever created a self-portrait quite like this before — it was good fun but I don’t think I’ll be giving up my day job just quite yet! I’m looking forward to seeing it in the gallery, hopefully it can raise some money for charity!”
…on home court advantage: “If I play well I’ve got a chance of beating any of the guys. I’m excited to be playing in front of my home crowd; the atmosphere was great last year. I could be playing against Federer or Nadal in my first match in the Finals so I’m going to have to be on top of my game from the very start.” (The tourney’s held at the O2.)
For your consumption: The canvases from all eight singles finalists will be displayed at the La Galleria Pall Mall in London November 8-18, 2010. After that, they’ll be sold through an online charity auction that ends on November 28, 2010.
