Artist Alley: Creepily Cute Gotham

20140212-183124.jpg

I can’t decide whether I think these illustrations by Chris Uminga are cute or creepy. His style is cross between Tim Burton and those Funko Pop Vinyl toys. Each character has an adorable button nose, with bobble head and tiny body, but there’s something evil about them. It could be the fact that the majority are indeed villains, but it’s more likely their yellow and black eyes that seem to stare at you but don’t see you, and those gigantic smiles with teeth that could rip your flesh like butter. This particular collection consists of Gotham’s finest, but he’s also tried his hand at Marvel characters too. No where near as creepy though.
