  • I enjoyed these abstracted and geometric superhero portraits from illustrator and photo-retoucher, James Reid. The New Zealand-based creator uses perfect color palettes and just the right amount of abstraction and grittiness to make these character illustrations feel more like fine art pieces.

  • Yesterday, Warner Bros. released the teaser poster for the next film in the Batman series: The Dark Knight Rises.
