‘Hero-Glyphics’, Modern Pop Culture Characters Illustrated as Ancient Hieroglyphic Images That Tell Their Story


Kansas City, Missouri-based artist Josh Lane has created Hero-Glyphics, a wonderful modern take on an ancient Egyptian form of communication where pop culture characters from video games, comic books, television shows, and movies are illustrated as hieroglyphic images that tell their story. Prints of Lane’s Hero-Glyphics series are available to purchase from Society6 and The Bazzar.
