Mano a Mano - World Cup 2014 Players Illustrations


The FIFA World Cup kicks off tomorrow in Brazil and my home town will host some amazing games. The whole country and world will be tuned in to the games, players and of course they will get a chance to know a little bit more about Brazil as well. One of the best things about the World Cup is the fact that it creates a lot of opportunities in all areas. For designers and illustrators is not different. Today we are stoked to feature the work titled Mano a Mano by Leo Natsume, from my hometown Porto Alegre.

Mano a Mano is a newsgame created for the Zero Hora newspaper in order to promote interactive and informative content about the players who will participate in the World Cup 2014. The game is responsive. I drew all the illustrations of the major players of the selections.
