Small Oddities: Minimalist Pop Culture Vol. 1

Minimalism is a movement, especially when it comes to pop culture fan art, be it movie posters, superhero logos, or television show promos. The ability to translate the core concept of a book, movie, show, or idea with the least amount of strokes is captivating.
