This Amazing Artwork Was Inspired By A Terrible X-Men Coloring Book

Magic Man, Magic Land by John Larriva

X-Mans was a pretty cool art show that was recently held at the Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, California. It featured original artwork that was based on pages taken from an X-Men coloring book that artist Brandon Bird had found in a dollar store a decade ago. The show’s unfortunately over, but Brandon is offering prints of the artwork on his site.

This is what Brandon had to say about the exhibit:

Each piece in X-Mans is inspired by a page in an X-Men coloring book. The original illustrations, credited to the enigmatic Ronald & Donald Williams, have fascinated me ever since I found the book in a Watsonville dollar store ten years ago. In the spirit of coloring books, I have asked my artist friends and colleagues to present their interpretations of this very unique work.
