Mark Bello's big-headed portraits are chock full of charm. He chooses subjects already infused with fun: Ninja Turtles, ThunderCats, the cast of The Goonies, characters from Wes Anderson's films, and finds their warmth and appeal at the tip of his pen. And when he turns his eye toward comic book character redesigns, he proves that he has a firm sense of superhero fashion.

Bello accepts commissions and sells prints through inPrint, Zazzle and deviantART. I hope that in the midst of those commissions and redesigns, he continues his lil' superhero series. I'd like to think young Bruce Wayne got his start whittling batarangs.
