Modern Skeleton Heroes

Good to the bone?

The toy designer MAD created for a solo show in Kansas City and described his work himself:

„This is a series of new illustrations overlaying my “Modern Hero” character onto classic and iconic “Heroes” from my childhood.  Growing up on a steady diet of cartoons, toys and video games in the 80’s and 90’s my love for these characters and stories runs deep.  They’ve inspired my imagination for almost 40 years… but the “Heroes” of today are often motivated by profit rather than to inspire. „


If Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Darth Vader, Superman, Stormtrooper or Silver Silver all heroes have instead of their faces skull that symbolizes the glory days of the hero comics and movies are past and they are a stucked in remakes and stagnation.

Excellent work which made us think about what the artist told us. However we think new gorgeous day will come back. What do you think?

You can follow MAD and discuss it on twitter or instagram.
