We love our classic superheroes, villians and Disney girls, but what do they get up to when they aren't kicking butt and going about their daily requirements? Are they super and perfect in every environment? Or are they just like you and I?
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.
