I first ran into Chris Uminga's work off of a pop up ad that I generally hate. The kind of clickbait link that has you loading a fresh page of ads for each of the 19 images you want to see. that is a testament to Uminga's work, as I got pulled into it despite the slow loads.
I'd describe his art style as Tim Burton if he were into geek culture. Uminga's pupil-less, slightly dark, and always adorable illustrations hit that special love I have for creepy adorable artwork. I made a point to meet with him at a convention and grabbed an un-cropped print of the very scarecrow image you see above. I also nabbed a Captain America print from my sister that she got from him at the same con. Since I bought that image a few years back, Chris has updated his style and gotten better at adding more detail to his chibi characters without taking away from their simple designs.
