Mondo has released a set of Marvel superhero portraits created by artist Mike Mitchell. These are part of a comics-themed show taking place at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, TX. The artist had this to say about his illustrations and what he wants to portray in them:
"My love for Marvel Comics was an integral part of growing up. Not just the comics, but the action figures, video games and cartoons. My intention with this show was to take those characters out of their action-oriented world and give them a moment of silence to catch their breath. There's a humanizing quality to that which I find extremely interesting. This has easily been the most ambitious project I've ever taken on, and it's due in part to my love for their universe; which is fictional by definition, but real in my mind and in the minds of others."
They turned out beautifully. The show will run from April 25th through May 17th.
