Patt Kelley Illustrates The Terrible Beauty Of Ripley, Doomed Supermodels And Marie Antoinette’s Head [Art]
In the hands of a different artist, Patt Kelley's characters, with their noodle arms and their watercolor tones, might come off as cute. But as readily accessible as their big heads and cartoon faces are, there is a great deal of nuance to both his original characters and his fan art. By playing with lines and light, Kelley creates scenes that are thoughtful, reflective and sweet, and he finds a strange beauty in unexpected situations: a man mourning his wife, a girl who plays superhero to snails, a group of bikini-clad cuties on the verge of doom and Ripley surrounded by a crew of Xenomorphs.
Kelley's full-length graphic novel, What Am I Going to Do Without You? is available digitally from Top Shelf, and you can see more of his work on deviantART and purchase original artwork from his Etsy shop.
