Those of you who know me, know I have a big rooted love for anything geeky, nerdy and comic-y. So, when I came across a post on Cool Material about an illustrator named Greg “Leon” Guillemin and his art collection, “Secret Life of Heroes” I was captivated with the hilarity of glimpsing the ‘real’ life of a superhero. That whole, “Celebrities are just like us,” statement – well what if it were true about our beloved superheroes?
Leon the author of ‘For Your Eyes Only,’ is a picture book illustrating the first anthology of the “Secret Life of Heroes” post-pop collection. Leon is hoping to get the book to the masses via crowd funding on Kickstarter.com. His geek art is truly fun and a conversational piece. Pledging starts at $35, for a first edition book and ships free worldwide in May.
I have a huge passion for art and Leon’s work is simply charming and interesting. In so, wanted to share it with all of you. Check out more of his work on Greg-Guillemin’s website.
Let me know if you would showcase this on your coffee table in the comments below!
