Impact Art Contest: Hernán Bernardello, midfield dynamo

Back for a second spell in the Bleu-blanc-noir squad, Hernán Bernardello stars in the Impact Art contest for the Saturday, September 17 game against New England Revolution. Artist Marco Paradiso chose to depict the Argentine midfielder in control of the ball, looking forward – probably trying to spot a passing lane to launch an attack.

"My illustration style is mostly influenced by the rotoscoping technique,” explains the illustrator. “I use a photo that inspires me as a reference and then I draw over it. I often try to use vibrant colours while maintaining a very minimalist approach in my work."

Right in the middle of the MLS Cup playoff race, the Montreal Impact (9-8-11, 38 points, 5th in East) faces New England Revolution (8-12-9, 33 points, 7th in East) at Stade Saputo in a crucial game for both teams’ aspirations of reaching the end of season tournament.
