Children and Their Shadows Reveal Their Superhero Alter-Egos

Jason Ratliff creates a series of playful illustrations featuring children and their geometrically-shaped superhero alter egos. Titled ‘Super Shadows,’ the collection displays what children see themselves as when they pretend to be crime-fighting superheroes and reveals why some really get into role-playing a character they look up to. The imagination is a powerful thing and the Indiana-based artist brings into perspective the spark of wonder in children’s minds that is never quite the same as the years go by.
