MAKING A MARK: Ted Kim - The Canadian Whose Colours Will Crack Your Corneas

Twice a week, Making A Mark gives an insanely talented artist some IADW brag-space. Today goes to Ted Kim. From music to art, Ted's a bloke with many artistic outlets. Thankfully comics are one of them.

While his Weapon X Wolverine is a vicious piece, I've yet to meet a 'Making A Markist' who could knock-up a drawing of Beta Ray Bill I didn't like. Ted is no exception. Just on his use of colours alone, if Beta ever gets a better book back, I hope Marvel hooks him for cover duty.

Captain America keeps the RGB coming, while Kim shows his true fan roots with Cloak and Dagger. The duo he describes as 'Marvel's original runaway super-heroes'. However if you want to talk Marvel's runaway hero of the last few years, you can't go much further than this guy...

Not only are the hues of this Iron Man masterpiece genius, it's perspective grabs your gaze and ensures you don't mistake it for a shot of the Avenger doing the same old armoured avenger things!

For the full online gallery Ted Kim has on offer, visit his personal website after the jump.
