A morning like any other, by Dan Leydon
After Messi picked up his fourth consecutive Ballon D’Or, I thought AFR’s audience would appreciate the humour of my take on where he keeps the trophies themselves. I wanted to communicate how unaffected by personal trophies he is. After some deliberation I came to the conclusion that the best way to do this was to show him integrating the pieces into his everyday life. In a way, this mundane task also humanises him.
In reference to the artwork itself, I’ve wanted to do comics that communicate without using speech. Hopefully they are that bit more immersive than my regular work.
