Super Hero Minimalism

"Illustrator Fabian Gonzalez strips comic book characters down to their bare essence in his clever new graphic Minimalism Heroes. The 30-year-old freelance designer, who says he grew up on Marvel and DC Comics, created the image for a T-shirt competition.

In honor of his favorite superhero, Gonzalez placed an instantly identifiable icon in the upper left-hand corner. “Batman was the superhero that originally got me hooked,” he told in an e-mail. “I remember when I was a little kid on holidays, I only wanted to wear my Batman outfit year after year until it didn’t fit anymore!”"
