MODERN HEROES

A series of illustrations created for my solo show in Kansas City October 2014

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.  
 
The “Modern Hero” character in my work is just a skeleton of what he was in his glory days.  Forever doomed with the burden of chasing “Big Money” he’ll never be able to rest.  Spawned during an age of creativity and imagination where he thrived, but now stuck living in an age of remakes and stagnation.
