We continued to be marveled by Alex Solis in his clever series named Icons Unmasked. The unknown identities of famous characters in pop culture and their costumed alter-egos are being revealed by witty cartoon-style portraits. Along the line, the famous billionaire-turned-politician Donald Trump is being controlled by the evil Mister Burns whereas a blabbing Minion has been lurking beneath the facade of a Storm Trooper.
The clever pairings aids the success of the Solis’ series. Solis linked the two characters that normally exist in different universe with specific shared aspect such as name, personality quirk or species. These two characters are now being imagined in a different scenario entirely, which serves as the major goal of Solis work. He further explains, “His aim is to bring a new sense of discovery to characters people has seen times without number.”
Till date, his ongoing project is the most popular and a number of illustrations have been compiled into a book by the same name. If you are interested in owning a copy you can pre-order it on Kickstarter.
