Designing some collateral for my buddy’s delivery service, using more of that cool “lineless” art style that I’ve been diggin’ of late. First draft.
The original X-Men were all white, could “pass”, and had (with the exception of Beast) an aesthetically pleasing mutation. Then Giant Sized X-Men rolled around introducing a new multi-cultural team, and Nightcrawler really stood out to me because he was the one guy who couldn’t pretend to be human. He was the true “outcast”, hated and feared since he was a child, which is something I could identify with. Despite all the crap he has to deal with, he is the most pleasant of the X-Men, with a huge heart and a sense of empathy, kindness, and compassion that I find very moving and inspirational. #xmen #marvel #comics #nightcrawler #pdxart #freelance #pdx
