With the MLS beckoning, LA Galaxy and D.C. United are ready to open proceedings on 6th March. The club have blitzed out of the blocks with engines firing, ready to resume their much acclaimed match day poster series. First blood comes from the talented David Diehl.

In short, David's style is unique and utterly match winning. His 'ikonen' series is one of many miles; it has travelled around the globe with appreciation not short coming. His Socrates inspired design particularly is a cornerstone of triumph. In collaborating with LA Galaxy, he has depicted three Galaxy game changers in Steven Gerrard, Robbie Keane and Giovani Dos Santos. A raw technique with an oil painted approach, Diehl uses gold leaf layered over pine wood to capture his portraits.
