DC Heroes Chill Out and Relax in the Art of Joseph [Art]
Much like the Magneto clone he shares a name with, deviantART user Joseph has an identity shrouded in secrecy, but the DC hero illustrations he’s posted are far more expressive than his profile box. He uses lays down heavy shading and generous amounts of texture, much like Tim Bradstreet, but he also employs natural, humorous poses in his Superman and Mister Miracle shots that have a kind of Norman Rockwell meets Ryan Sook feel to them.
Joseph particularly enjoys playing around with Scott Free and Big Barda, the latter of whom he envisions wearing bunny slippers at home while vacuuming. His Wildcat, meanwhile, gets a slightly more by-the-books portrait against the ropes in a boxing ring, and the Last Son of Krypton shows up in an overt homage to a classic Rockwell diner scene.
Check ’em out after the jump and kick back when you’re done with Blue Beetle and Booster Gold yukking it up at a tiki bar.
