8 Days of Batmen- Ben Affleck!

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014

BAffleck16

One of the stars of the upcoming movie “Superman v Batman: Dawn of Justice”, Ben Affleck. I’ve come to terms with the choice of actor here, and will give Affleck a chance to make me forget he’s Ben Affleck and believe he is Batman… not sure he can pull that off, but he’s got the benefit of my doubt. One of eight caricatures from my upcoming limited edition print “Bats in the Belfry”, which debuted this week at Wizard World Chicago Comic Con, and will be onsale in The Studio Store on Monday!

Look for the full print image on Monday, and details on how to order your signed, limited edition print!

8 Days of Batmen- Val Kilmer!

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

VKilmer95Star of the 1995 movie “Batman Forever”, Val Kilmer. Who could forget the scene in the Batcave when a shirtless Kilmer rises to his feet to intimidate Chris O’Donnell‘s Dick Grayson, but Val looks like a scrawny wimp? Good thing the suit has plenty of muscles… and nipples! One of eight caricatures from my upcoming limited edition print “Bats in the Belfry”, debuting this Thursday at Wizard World Chicago Comic Con, and onsale in The Studio Store on Monday!

We interrupt “Monday MADness” this week with the continuation of our “8 Days of Batmen”, finally reaching the colorful Caped Crusaders… starting with the most colorful of all! It’s the star of the 1966 TV series “Batman”, Adam West! This is a little different take on the caricature I did for the NCS Comic-Con T-shirt. One of eight caricatures from my upcoming limited edition print “Bats in the Belfry”, debuting this Thursday at Wizard World Chicago Comic Con, and onsale in The Studio Store next Monday, Aug. 25th!

8 Days of Batmen- Lewis Wilson!

Saturday, August 16th, 2014

LWilson43No sense playing coy here, so let’s get on with it.

Yes, I do have a new limited edition print coming out. Following my ongoing theme of caricatures of a single fictional character portrayed by multiple actors in film and TV, the subject of this print is Batman… very appropriate considering it’s the 75th anniversary of the character this year. Like all my prints, each caricature pokes some fun at the way he (or she) is portrayed by the individual actors and the films or shows they appeared in.

The print is debuting next week at the Wizard World Chicago Comic-Con, and will be available here in The Studio Store next week. Leading up to the online release, I will be posting a sneak peek of the final art for each Batman every day in chronological order, starting with the star of the 1942 movie serial series “Batman”, Lewis Wilson.
