With World Cup tensions running high because of the fickle nature of this year's surprising games, comic relief is very much needed and it comes in the form of a World Cup players illustration series.
However, these are not your usual illustrations glorifying players. It is quite the opposite in fact. Colombia-based illustrator Fulvio Obregon created a his World Cup players illustration series in a way that portrays the always-fit and muscular soccer players as overweight.
Featuring soccer stars like Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo, Argentina’s Lionel Messi and England’s Wayne Rooney among others, the illustration series is designed in the name of fun and some cheeky comic relief. The images show some of the world's best players and athletes with bulging stomachs and double chins.
