Harley Quinn by Hainan “Nooligan” Saulique
The Joker by Hainan “Nooligan” Saulique
HaiNaNu “Nooligan” Saulque is an artist, comic creator and graphic designer based in Sacramento, Ca. An old soul in a young body, HaiNaNu finds inspiration in times past. From the cartoons of his youth to films he missed by decades, from golden age comics to classic newspaper strips, you will find a creator who has immersed himself in the what he loves. His style is contemporary with a flare of nostalgia.
Batman by Chris Uminga
Christopher Uminga is a Connecticut based painter and illustrator. With his two Boston terriers by his side, Chris has spent the last ten years developing a unique style that blends together creepy and cute . You can find the influences of classic movies, Saturday morning cartoons, graffiti and low brow/outsider art in his work. He has created art that can be seen on products ranging from comic books, backpacks to t-shirts and toys. Chris owns way too many baseball hats and is a long long suffering New York Knicks fan.
Superman by Chris Uminga
I really like the look of these – Sho Murase’s Catwoman is elegant, and Nooligan’s Joker has a great, modern punch to him. I know I’m going to be adding Uminga’s Batman to my collection when I can get my hands on one. Interested? Ask your comic or gaming shop to pre-order one for you.
