Minimalism Heroes is a sweet idea from Fabian Gonzalez a 30-year-old freelance designer that has broken comic book characters down to their bare essence with the above graphic. Gonzalez says he grew up on Marvel and DC Comics, which were the inspiration for this Threadless T-shirt competition.
Gonzalez used an easily identifiable icon in the upper left-hand corner and stated.
“Batman was the superhero that originally got me hooked. 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!”
Check out Gonzalez's art which he has posted on his Lishoffs Flickr.
