I thought that if I want to make myself known (and I still do not know if I want) as one that draws footballer players, I will have to draw also famouse players, not only the ones that I love because they play (or played) with Calcio Catania. So I also thought that drawing a cartoon-style portrait of Lionel Messi was a good idea, because many people think that “The pulga” (the flea), as Messi is nicknamed, is the best football player in the world and many others think that he is the second strongest player in the world, after Cristiano Ronaldo.
I’m not going to get into this religious war, at least until one of the two does not land in Catania (!), I just chose Messi because I like him more than Cristiano Ronaldo. Maybe my preference depends on the fact tha he suffered from a hormonal insufficiency that did not make it grow and, despite this unfortunate circumstance, he had a successfull life. However I cannot omit to remember the “Panama papers” case, proofing that he is not a spotless hero.
