Inspired by Marko Manev’s recent series of Marvel prints, I decided to create my own series of Minimalist Grimm-centric Character Posters.  Using the most elemental traits of each of the seven main characters, I produced a set of graphic iconography that not only represents their physical being, but also what each character stands for as well: Strength, Compassion, Corruption, Addiction, Power, Faith and Evil.

This is a story about a man with a good heart doing not-so-good things for an extremely good cause.

That is, until he meets the one person who offers to remind him the importance of not only being honest with others, but also what it is to be honest with yourself.
