The Evolution of Pop Culture Icons

The art of Jeff Victor, mostly involving pop culture icons, be it famous actors or simply cool (or even legendary) characters from movies and such, is something you really should be paying attention to, especially his series of works depicting the “evolution” of Batman’s suit or the career of Jack Nicholson.
