Remember the famous painting “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” by Georges Seurat? … What do you mean, “No”? Really? How about this … Remember the pointillism painting from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off? Ah, now we’re on the same page.
Below you’ll find Rey Taira’s super-cool digital print on canvas featuring numerous DC superheroes in their New 52 stylings. He titled the painting, “Saturday Morning in Front of La Salle De Justice.” Check out Ronnie Raymond (Firestorm Protocol version) chatting with Captain Atom! Sweet! Click the image to enlarge; we’re talking crazy-big size!
This painting is featured in the Darkness & Light exhibition currently touring the United States as part of DC Entertainment’s We Can Be Heroes initiative to combat hunger in the Horn of Africa. Check out their website and do what you can to help.
Taira also did a companion piece featuring DC supervillains as counterparts to the heroes entitled, “Sunday Evening by the Legion of Doom.” It’s a fun piece, but he used Captain Cold as Firestorm’s opposite. Weird. You can see this companion piece over on Comic Vine.
I became aware of this fantastic piece over on Diabolu Frank’s Martian Manhunter blog, The Idol-Head of Diabolu. Be sure to check it out! Thanks, Frank!
Support Firestorm! Fan the flame!
