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.

Leo. The Best. 3x.

24 years old. An ego that is pushed far beneath an incomparable will to win. 5 feet, 6 inches of skill and athleticism. The players, the media, and the coaches have spoken. Lionel Messi is, for the third time, the FIFA World Player of the Year. With so many years left in his career, it’s mystifying. With regards to the award, he sits next to the likes of Cruyff, Zidane, and Ronaldo. But as we’ve noticed, his ego doesn’t make him care about being the best. He cares about winning with Argentina and Barcelona, and providing joy to the fans. Just keep doing what you’re doing, Leo, and we’ll be just fine.
