Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar and Zlatan as Samurai by Pupazarro

Illustrator and designer Pupazarro has imagined football legend’s as samurai warriors and they are absolutely banging.

Pupazzaro’s work previously imagined football legends as war generals but has moved onto a Japanese inspired theme.  The work illustrates Neymar, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan in samurai gear in a Japanese style.
