Pelé, the kid who would be football king, 3 January 2023

David Squires


It’s an impossible challenge to condense a person’s life into eight small panels, especially someone who achieved as much as Pele. I decided to draw if from the perspective of him as a child, dreaming – as many of us do -  of becoming the greatest footballer in the world. The difference is, he actually managed it.
