Dan LuVisi is a digital concept artist working in the film, video game and comic book industry.
“I was inspired by my childhood nostalgia, growing up on Disney and Nickelodeon cartoons,” said LuVisi to Huffpost. “But what my intentions were to do, was combine that love with the dark underbelly of Hollywood and how it corrupts some of its many actors and actresses.” For some of the images, he has also created elaborate and entertaining back-stories, which you can read on his blog.

While he rapidly built a massive fan-base on the online art community Deviant Art for his likenesses of characters like Spider-Man & Venom, Iron Man, King Kong, Jack Sparrow and the Joker, it is the original creations springing from his seemingly never-ending well of imagination that have garnered the strongest accolades by his critics.
