Rory Phillips Pits David Bowie Against Killer Kaiju And Redesigns The Birds Of Prey As A Scooter Gang [Art]
Rory Phillips has plenty of thoughtful—and sometimes funny—approaches to character design and redesign. He casts Wonder Woman as a Scythian warrior and trades in her bondage-themed lasso for the ancient Chinese weapon known as the meteor hammer. His Batgirl and Black Canary form a vigilante scooter club with a bit of roller derby flair. And he gives us a poster for the non-existent movie I somehow need to see, starring David Bowie as a fighter of giant monsters.
I especially love the range of ways Phillips draws women: his almost saintly illustration of Brienne of Tarth to his sensual portrait of Santanico Pandemonium. Phillips has prints of some of his illustrations (including the Bowie poster) available in his store, and you can follow him on his website or on Tumblr.
