Andy Park has the enviable task of translating Marvel comics into big-screen spectaculars like "Thor: Ragnarok" and the forthcoming "Ant-Man and the Wasp."
Andy Park, Marvel's visual development supervisor, has the dream job of translating the crazy, colorful world of Marvel comic books into workable real-world designs for movies like "Thor: Ragnarok." Check out some of his art from this and other Marvel films, including forthcoming sequel "Ant-Man and the Wasp."
Park worked with director Taika Waititi to give "Thor: Ragnarok" a bold, colorful aesthetic drawing heavily on the outlandish designs of legendary Marvel artist Jack Kirby.
For Park, one of the most fun parts of working on "Ragnarok" was designing villain Hela and her striking headdress.

Park's work took a new direction for "Guardians of the Galaxy," in which Marvel ventured into space opera.
"Guardians" director James Gunn encouraged Park's team to mine classic retro inspiration like Flash Gordon and pulp sci-fi paperbacks.
