Proud Daughter Re-Imagines Her Father as a Superhero

Photographer and illustrator Giulia Pex transforms images of her father with superimposed drawings to turn him into a caped crusader. With Father's Day fast approaching, the Milan, Italy-based artist's collection of images in her Behance album titled Dad, you are my favourite superhero shows just how highly she regards her old man.

The artist shares pictures of her dad–playfully tearing open his button-down shirt at his chest, la Superman, to reveal an illustration of the last son of Krypton's signature “S” symbol and standing valiantly on his roof with a flowing cape drawn on. Pex even captures his vehicles of choice, including an average car revamped as the Batmobile. The personal series presents five images of a father as these comic book superheroes, regaled for their valor and duty to protect, with a daughter's simple message: “That's how I see him.”
