Brandon Bird’s ‘X-Mans: The Strangest Art Show Of All’ Redraws An X-Men Coloring Book With Uncanny Results [Art]
So have you heard about these X-Men characters? Apparently they’re pretty popular, and they’ve been in the news lately thanks to their appearance in a new movie. But in all the places you’ve seen them, whether it’s comics, the big screen or even commercials for breakfast biscuits, I can promise you that you’ve never seen Marvel’s Merry Mutants like they’re depicted in Brandon Bird’s ‘X-Mans’ art show.
The idea behind it is amazingly simple: Each piece, curated by Bird and produced by artists like Tony Christopherson, Christopher Hastings, Sina Grace and more, is inspired by a page from an X-Men coloring book, presented alongside the finished piece. They’re fantastic, and you can check out a few of my favorites below!
For more information and to see more pretty amazing pieces, check out Bird’s gallery online, but I will warn you: There is a piece by Dyna Moe of Cyclops where everything in the picture is made of snakes, and it is terrifying.
