Native American Style Superhero Geek Art

Artby Joey Paur

It's exciting when I come across new and different kind of art styles representing some of our favorite superheroes, and this is a set that many of you are sure to enjoy. These designs come from artist Jeffrey Veregge, who grew up on a reservation in the Pacific Northwest and studied traditional coastal Salish art. He ended up using his knowledge and skills to create these beautiful pieces of art. These would actually make pretty cool tattoo designs.

Here's  note from the artist:

A member of the Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe, I was raised and spent a majority of my life on our reservation known locally as Little Boston, which is located near Kingston, Washington. Although I am enrolled there, I am also both of Suquamish and Duwamish tribal ancestry. 

I am a honor graduate from the Art Institute of Seattle, and I have had the privilege to study with Tsimshian master carver David Boxley for a short time learning the basics of Salish form-line design . . . [My work] is a reflection of a lifetime love affair with comic books, toys, TV and film. Taking my passions and blending them with my Native perspective.
