Jamie McKelvie Wikipedia
Jamie McKelvie is a British cartoonist and illustrator, known for his both work on books such as Phonogram, Young Avengers and The Wicked + The Divine, and his approach to comic character design.
Since 2003, McKelvie has collaborated with journalist Kieron Gillen on a comic strip for the official PlayStation Magazine UK, entitled Save Point. He has worked on a number of projects for Image Comics, including Phonogram. His next major work was with colorist Guy Major and Matthew Wilson on his creator-owned series Suburban Glamour.
He has done various work for Marvel Comics, including a run on Defenders with Matt Fraction, and the X-Men: Season One graphic novel with Dennis Hopeless. He has collaborated with Gillen on a relaunch of Young Avengers for Marvel. Currently he and Gillen are working on a third volume of Phonogram, and on a new series called The Wicked + The Divine.
McKelvie's artwork also graces the covers of the Art Brut album Brilliant! Tragic! and the single "Lost Weekend", and of two novels by writer Mur Lafferty.
Jamie has redesigned a number of characters' costumes. This includes the 2012 redesign of long-time character Carol Danvers, for a relaunch of the character as the new Captain Marvel. Subsequently, in late 2013, the design for Kamala Khan's outfit when she becomes Ms Marvel was unveiled. He has also made available his personal takes on Wonder Woman, Iron Man and Cyclops .
Of character design, he has said eschewed the word practical when describing his Marvel designs, stating that he considers the "message a [..] character's design is putting across", and specifically for Ms Marvel, the design reflects "the Captain Marvel legacy, and also her story and her background".
