 BATMAN RETURNS AGAIN (plus a new look!)

Hey everyone! Here's some more Batman art; a new painting along with some sample pages I've been sending around recently. Yep, that's right, more Batman. I'm going to switch it up after this post, I swear.

If you look closely at the pages, you might recognize the convenience store worker and the robbers: their designs are all modeled after "The Simpsons" characters Apu, Snake and the Babysitter Bandit  and the interior of the store is modeled after the Kwik-E-Mart.  And by "molded after" I mean "stolen from". I did this for no other reason than to entertain myself so, hopefully, you get a kick out of it, too.

In addition, I finally overhauled the look of this blog along with adding some new bells and whistles such as a search field, a Twitter feed and a snazzy logo designed by my wife and fellow artist, Erin Gallagher. Fancy! In fact, I'm wearing a top hat while typing this.

See ya soon!

Lookin good sir! I think maybe a touch of highlights on the hands in the pin-up, they're getting a bit lost, aside from that, this is a great set of pieces. And the new look is super-clean. Me likey.
