The Natural World

Describe your first memorable experience exploring and spending time in nature. Were you in awe? Or were you not impressed? Would you rather spend time in the forest or the city?

This is a Superman minimalist poster for the occasion of the release of Man of Steel, by my friend Joogz. Check out his other awesome work. Prints and posters are available to purchase, and also t-shirts here. I have one myself and it’s great, even wear it whenever I want to feel Super. 😀
