PENCILLER & ILLUSTRATOR
Eisner and Ringo award winner, the fan-Favorite Brazilian artist Mike Deodato’s style ranges from high energy drawings to a noir photorealism. Deodato’s lifelong love for comics comes from his late father, a comic artist himself, who guided his son’s artistic growth.
Soon, Deodato became one of the most prolific and in demand artists of that decade, with credits that include Marvel’s Avengers, Elektra, The Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man and Thor. Eventually, he reduced his workload and reinvented his art once again, creating a darker, more detailed style, experimenting it in a Nightcrawler story showcased in X-Men Unlimited. Deodato then managed to draw one of his favorite series to date: The Incredible Hulk, written by Bruce Jones.
After 24 years as an artist exclusive at Marvel, he left the company to pursue a creator-owned career. More recent projects of this new phase include Berserker Unbound, The Resistance, Bad Mother, Redemption, Not All Robots, The Fourth Man, Newthink and Absolution.
