    From the link: “We love the idea of minimalist reinterpretation because we enjoy seeing how an artist can strip icons to their barest elements and still be recongnizable to a mass audience”

    I think the problem here is the objective of designing a superhero costume is to make it iconic. All the work has already been done by the original artists, all he really has done is taken off the arms and legs.
