Knitted superhero uniforms
Knitted superhero uniforms by Mark Newport. The comic cover samplers are nice too.
"Freedom Bedcover," a quilt made of Batman comic book pages suggests that it might offer strength when tired or provide warmth from cold. But its irony lies in the fact that it would not protect or shelter its owner from anything - despite the depictions of super heroes representing strength and power. Pumped-up cartoon characters are just a few of the personas from which the artist learned about masculinity.
