There's a childlike quality to Scott C.'s watercolor paintings, filled with shaky lines and crooked dot eyes. But the characters in his "Great Showdowns" series -- heroes and villains, monsters and machines, Muppets and millionaires -- are immediately recognizable, even if they're smiling when they should be scowling at their greatest rivals. See more smiling showdowns after the cut.
Many prints by Scott C. (sometimes credited as Scott Campbell), included some of his "Great Showdowns" are available from Gallery1988.
