Jose Matheu was born and raised in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Jose is a versatile, talented young man. Recently graduated from art school he now does freelance illustration, graphic design, cover art, character design, animation, 3D modeling, UI design, and painting and has worked for various magazines and newspapers in Latin America.
On his website he states:
'One of the earliest things I can remember is painting my childhood hero, the green Power Ranger. I knew from the very first moment that I wanted to create characters and worlds that excite people, and that is still my dream.'
While he may not have created the sport stars he portrays, that were their respective parents, but he is most certainly already capable to excite people with his designs!
Here you can see his works of current football stars, starting with the 3D design of Lionel Messi, but also 2D designs of Zlatan, Falcao, Ronaldinho and many more. He continues in his bio:
'Thankfully, I now know that humans usually have more than three fingers on their hands [referring to his painting of Power Ranger], but the joy I feel while drawing, painting, or creating 3D art is the same I felt when I finger painted as a little kid.'
It all starts with joy, so if you want to enjoy more of the work of this upcoming talent be sure to check out his site:
