The Secret Life of Heroes. Pop Art Illustrations
What do our favorite superheroes and villains get up to when we can’t see them? Are they as super as they seem? Grégoire Guillemin decided to explode the myth. This French digital illustrator shows that reality is always stranger than fiction, making no exceptions for these idealized characters. Off duty, many of them look just like us mere mortals, and in Guillemin’s work, they share our vices too.
Using pop-art style snapshots of mundane, sometimes compromising scenes, Guillemin hints at the private lives of characters from our best known comics and cartoons. This collection, entitled "The Secret Life of Heroes", is made up of over 60 pop art illustrations.
