Based in Cairo, Egypt, Mohamed Tobgy has come up with some incredible designs to make some of the biggest names in World football appear as comic book superheroes. Donning their respective countries’ national team colours, Togby has drawn a good balance between ‘footballers’ & ‘superheroes’, and often for many passionate supporters those two terms are interchangeable.
Football and comics often go hand in hand for many, and for Togby, it was an opportune moment to showcase his talent and bring in the best of both worlds. Understandably, football for many, is not just a sport, but an emotion, which the artist surely has banked upon to create beautiful pieces and shared them with the world and his followers on social media websites.
Germany’s World Cup-winning star, Bastian Schweinsteiger, defending Ballon D’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo, the World Cup Golden Ball winner Lionel Messi, the ever-popular Zlatan Ibrahimovic & Brazil’s poster-boy Neymar, have all been illustrated in these designs with examples of how these original works were produced also being showcased.
Football stars like Schweinsteiger, Ronaldo, Messi, and others are considered to be superheroes in their countries, of their own accord. Football fans from all across the globe root for their favorite teams and players, showcasing a wide array of emotions before, during, and after the game. Many fans have posters and if possible, would tend to seek out the greatest moments of the stars’ to capture them in the best acrylic prints possible. Such is the craze of these football superstars and to say that the artist has done justice to them, is nothing but the truth!
So, sit back, relax, and enjoy these footballing superheroes. You can follow Mohamed Togby on Twitter @tobgt
