Anthony Lister In Progress

In this short work in progress video you can see the skill of the Australian artist Anthony Lister, which I admire most. The ability to create not one but two more or less symmetrical pieces of art.

I always go mad, when I have to draw the same thing twice ;).

IMHO his art is really modern and outstanding.

Especially the analysis of the phenomenon of super heroes. Movies and comics always tried to show the heroic beside the weak side of these characters, but only Lister manages to do this in a very ironic way. His figures are more human than Clark Kent ever was, even when dressed up in super clothes. They are humorous and fragile.
