World Cup 2014: Anime Team Mascots

3 Jul

The World Cup continues to inspire artists and designers around the world. Including this anonymous artist who has created anime mascots for each of the World Cup teams. The drawings are done in national team colours and incorporate various cultural references. Well, usually. I’m still puzzled by the Costa Rica one.

Below are the mascots for the teams in the quarter-finals. I recommend checking out the rest of the drawings, even if you’re not a fan of anime. The Switzerland one alone is worth a view!
