Artist Anjin Anhut reimagines the original X-Men. I love the darker freakish take on them.
‘Mutants are outcasts of society finding solace, company and purpose in Xavier’s school for gifted youngsters. So my goal was to make their mutations not only very visible, but to a certain degree disfiguring. Something that renders them to be freaks on the surface, so that they can show their humanity in their deeds.’ - Anjin Anhut
