Superheroes Reimagined as Hipster Pin-Ups

Conceptualizing his own versions of film and comic book superheroes, David M. Buisán’s illustrations of the caped crusaders prefer to wear skinny jeans and knit caps. His stylized superhero hipsters flash the familiar symbols of their predecessors in the form of chest tattoos and skateboard logos. Certain pieces have been dubbed “pin-ups” by the artist (the adorable lip-biting is a nice touch), putting an interesting spin on the cultural icons and their genesis as symbols of hyper masculinity-turned-objects of sexuality. Other illustrations seem to simply toy with ideas about superhero consumer culture without a total wardrobe transformation. Click through for more of Buisán’s work.
