“A friend of mine started a project that revolved around what adults wanted to be when they were kids. From ninja astronauts to water park owner, there were some pretty fantastic answers. To be honest, I can’t remember anything before artist. Which brings me to today,” explains Jason Ratliff about his artistic inspiration.

In his work the artist combines his two loves, art and design, as seen in his series “Super Shadows”. The Indianapolis-based artist illustrates kids and their superhero shadows. The power of imagination drives both Ratliff and his characters, as these kids turn into their favorite superhero ‘in the shadows’.

Check out Ratliff’s beautiful images and allow yourself to dream with him and his superhero kids!
