Flavorpill posted a nice bit today about Simon Monk’s paintings of superheroes in bags. And, while I love a comic book character (my first true crush was on Speed Racer), I am much more drawn to his series of slightly generic plastic toys in bags. The objects themselves are less caricature and more iconic childhood, which is far more interesting to me personally. Suggest reading his about page in order to better understand the reasoning behind his work.
