Comic Heroes : Native American Style

scarlet blurr 560x229

Today we’d like to feature a collection of comic book art by artist and designer Jeffrey Veregge. He studied traditional coastal Salish art after growing up on a reservation in the American pacific northwest, and that style influences all of his art work. In this collection, Jeffrey depicts famous comic book heroes (mostly) in the style of his culture :

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.
