Artist Alley: Terrifyingly Cute Bad Guys


Christopher Uminga has done it again – he’s managed to take some of the most evil villains in the whole of the Marvel Universe, and make them look like insanely adorable bed wetters. His style reminds me of Tim Burton’s illustrations in the Nightmare Before Christmas, mixed with the Chibli characters that are popular in Japan (the style that helped make those cute little Funko Pop Vinyls). I just love it.

Not only has he made them look rediculously cute; with oversized heads, button noses, and those big ‘look deep into your soul’ eyes, he’s also dressed them up in little suits. They look like they’re off to school on picture day. The collection includes Galactus, Thanos, Ultron, Drax the Destroyer, and Apocalypse. I’d love to see what he can do with some of the worlds ‘Mightiest Heroes’ next.
