Each piece in X-Mans is inspired by a page in an X-Men coloring book. The original illustrations, credited to the enigmatic Ronald & Donald Williams, have fascinated me ever since I found the book in a Watsonville dollar store over a decade ago. In the spirit of coloring books, I asked my artist friends and colleagues to present their new interpretations of this very unique work. X-Mans ran in the upper gallery of Nucleus May 17 - 20, 2014. A selection of prints from the show is here.
