Canadian artist Kalle Malloy does great character work that's all about balance. The artist's clean compositions carry just the right amount of texture and shading, making the people, robots, talking animals and world eaters within pop in the best possible way. This trait shines even when Malloy's paying homage to the styles of creators like Jeff Lemire, Eric Powell and Bill Watterson. Take a look at some of our favorite pieces by Malloy, including his takes on The Goon, Machine Man, Rocket Raccoon and other iconic characters after the jump.
