Superheroes are regular Joes when they’re not saving the world, as seen through the lens of this photographer
Have you wondered what superheroes do when they’re not out there saving the world? Photographer Edy Hardjo imagined them doing the pretty regular stuff we all do when they have some time off. You know, like hanging out with the guys, eating fast food, comparing each others… oh, never mind.
Think you know your superhero underwear like the back of your hand? Grab this minimalist art print that documents all the famous superhero and villain undies in one place. It was designed by Toronto-based graphic arts studio Design Different and was inspired by childhood, obviously: ‘When I think back to my childhood, memories flood my […]
Self-confessed nerd Josh Lane did a series of illustrations reimagining iconic fictional heroes such as X-Men, The Avengers, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as hieroglyphics. What a genius.
Blame it on having to live up to a fabulous name. For Batman bin Suparman (yes, just one letter shy of another superhero), it has meant becoming infamous overnight when he was recently jailed in Singapore for multiple theft and housebreaking offences. For every Batman that fights crime, there’s another Batman that commits crime. Guess […]
Illustrator Marko Manev’s Noir superhero series gives a fresh twist to these classic comic book characters. Portrayed as silhouetted beacons in a world of brooding darkness, these iconic heroes seem even more heroic set in black and white. Villains, beware.
Swedish artist Andreas Englund, through his current series of photorealistic oil paintings, visualizes to us the life of a superhero that’s quite past his prime. The series is called Aging Superhero, and it aims to show that despite old age, people can still do remarkable and praise-worthy things. I want him to make a series […]
Galactus, Dr. Doom, Magneto, Venom, The Joker, Bane, Doomsday. These are some of the biggest villains the world’s superheroes have had to overcome. But they have one common enemy they have still yet to hurdle: the lamp. Dun-dun-dun-dun!
UK-artist Olly Moss fascinates with his posters and illustrations which are mostly focused on superheroes. He creates outstanding pieces that sometimes appear as ‘simple’ as a paper cut but always impress with their richness of detail.
When he’s not busy being an ad creative in his day job, Netherlands-based Chungkong does quite a bit of irreverent artwork — such as mounting superheroes on sticks as sweet ice popsicles. Can’t help but think the Captain America one would taste quite good as a cherry vanilla popsicle. Somebody needs to actually manufacture these […]
Bob Al-Greene recently teamed up with Emil Lendof (who did the layout) and Nina Frazier (who did the art direction) for Mashable to illustrate just how much it costs to be a superhero back then and right now. Yep, even superheroes have to grapple with rising living costs, that’s the hard truth of life.
Portraits of people with superhero-inspired logos, illustrations and comic panes imprinted all over their faces? We are all living a bit larger-than-life these days. Artist Sandra Chevrier wields quite a bit of magic with watercolor, acrylic, pencil and collage.
French digital art and self-professed ‘eclectic graphical gamer’ Grégoire Guillemin has a loud and wonderful pop art series, Secret Hero Life, where he depicts the secret lives of superheroes (bizarrely, Snow White is in the mix too) engaging in everyday human experiences such as making out, popping zits and smoking.
Warning: once you watch this video, you’ll never be able to look at Spiderman the same way again. The folks at Animation Domination High Def want the world to know what Spiderman would actually be like if he had scientifically-accurate spider traits. You probably wouldn’t want this guy fighting crime in your town.
The ever-prolific Olly Moss, who has done too many cool projects — like the Star Wars poster and these fantastic silhouettes — also claims to be on a ‘continuing quest to ruin super heroes for everyone’. There are only two in the series so far, but the English graphic designer has already ruined Spidey for […]
