1. Jeff Victor, who is a designer for Nickelodeon Games and a freelance illustrator, told BuzzFeed a little bit of his thought process behind putting together his new series:
The idea for this piece came about when I realized there were many characters I wanted to paint, but couldn’t find a way to work them into my “Evolutions” series. It occurred to me to do an alphabet, with each letter incorporating a different pop-culture/geek icon from my favorite fandoms. Quite honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed working on a project as much as this one. The only hard part was deciding which character to use for each letter. Should ‘H’ have been Harry Potter, Harley Quinn, Hellboy, Hulk, or He-Man? Tough decision!
