I consider him the find of the century, if I’m honest. Also, following on that honesty train, I might be exaggerating.
But seriously, the guy’s work is rather impressive. Since 2001, Young has been illustrating comics for Marvel and has also started writing a few. He happens to have the most glorious DeviantArt page where he shares some incredible illustrations including those of baby superheroes.
I love Skottie’s work but I especially love his baby superheroes. From the Avengers to the X-Men – Skottie is pretty good at capturing the essence of our favourite heroes but in their child like forms. He has also done a rather adorable Wizard of Oz series which, if you’re a fan of the yellow brick road, you’ll love.
These cute images could make fun phone screensavers BUT I think purchasing a few online and gifting them to friends might be the better way to go. I think my office needs 3 or 4 Skottie Young works to truly complete it.
Anyone else feel the same?
I'd love to chat to you some more.
I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
