Collective Cult has been offering some great, limited edition tee shirts (HERE & HERE) and now they are about to release their very first print. Titled, “In The Shade” it was done by Benedict Woodhead and it pays homage to both Gotham’s protector and Krypton’s chosen son.
Benedict Woodhead is an English designer and illustrator based in Yorkshire. Driven to produce work which cures his consuming and obsessive passion to redesign images from popular culture, from both his movie posters and his portraits you get the sense that Benedict’s imagination allows him to accomplish this quite easily. For his poster designs, Benedict uses clever ideas utilising iconology from the movie he is depicting to deliver a minimal, yet effective representation of the movie. His portraits again utilise the same iconic imagery and ideas but also showcase his talent as an artist.

Here is what Benedict had to say about the project. As an artist and designer I am driven to produce work which cures my consuming and obsessive passion to redesign images from popular culture.
Having a interest for all things Gotham from an early age, it was inevitable that I would accept the challenge to design a Batman and Superman image in response to the hype surrounding the imminent release of the movie.
My intention was to create a symbol which captured the alter egos of both super heroes in a subtle yet powerful design. – Benedict Woodhead
