Butcher Billy is a Brazilian-based artist and graphic designer. His work filters common, everyday tropes — pulled from cinema, video games, and music — through a rich, colorful palette that’s equal parts comic book and Pop art. In a new project, Marvel #Selfies, he explores what might happen when superheroes, characters famed for bravery and sacrifice, indulge their social sides.

We live in the age of the selfie. A fast self-portrait, made with a smartphone’s camera and immediately distributed and inscribed into a network, is an instant visual communication of where we are, what we’re doing, who we think we are, and who we think is watching. Warhol would be so proud.

Selfies have changed aspects of social interaction, body language, self-awareness, privacy, and humor, altering temporality, irony, and public behavior. It’s become a new visual genre—a type of self-portraiture formally distinct from all others in history. Like it or not, those damn selfies have become some kind of a big deal for pop culture, and pop art.

As Tony Stark himself might say, “let’s do a headcount here.”
