Kevin Wada – Comic Fashion Illustrator

Now I would be remiss in running a geek fashion blog without mentioning the likes of popular illustrator, Kevin Wada. His works have graced the covers of many a comic publisher and convention hall. From character portraits to comic-themed fashion illustrations (my personal favourite), Wada paints a mesmerizing dance of colours and patterns to spark the visual senses.

His major delve into the geek fashion side was with the X-Fashion series in 2013, where Wada and his friend and Max Wittert took the beloved females of the X-Men world and drew out their personalities in a fierce fashionista lineup.

Paint is not, especially absent of the thick link of ink, is not an often soon technique used to render comic characters. But it is an increasingly popular choice for covers and personal illustrations.
