tremoço cardoso

Character Illustration

“Tremoço Cardoso” is a character I invented for a football-related facebook page. Tremoço, or white lupin, is a seed from the Lupinus plant which is commonly ordered at Portuguese coffee shops during football games. The white lupin metaphor is thereby used to create a comparison to the so-called “sideline coach”, which is often found in your nearest Portuguese café, who thinks they know everything about the team they support and who stand by their own opinions as the only correct one, causing disputes wherever they are to be found.
