Batman Day

Friday, September 22nd, 2017


Saturday September 23rd is Batman Day! And to celebrate I finished this tribute to Dick Sprang that I’ve been working on for awhile (or more accurately began working on, quit for a year, and then picked back up after I moved).

Dick Sprang was an amazing guy (look him up, in addition to a comics artist he was an explorer/adventurer) and my personal favorite Two Face artist in the history of comics. His Batman work is so distinct and beautiful, I can’t say enough good things about his wonderful artwork.

This drawing is based on a pin-up Sprang did thirty years ago that blew me away when I first saw it. Here’s to Batman and to Dick Sprang. Thanks for the amazing comics!

My good friend Eric and I looked through my Batman comic collection tonight and then I drew this sketch.

Now that it’s finally on dvd, my friends Eric and Bambi are watching every episode of the 1960’s Batman tv series and reviewing it on a brand new podcast called ‘Atomic Batteries To Power!’

Eric is a longtime fan of the show and Bambi is watching them for the first time ever!

If you like Batman and you like fun, you should take a listen by clicking on the word Batusi below.

You Are My Superhero

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

For anyone who likes superheroes you’ve got to visit the Dayton Art Institute’s “You Are My Superhero” exhibit! It features original artwork, animation cells, costumes, comic books and comic book ephemera spanning the history of the super powered hero (and even his non-superpowered predecessors like Zorro and the Lone Ranger).

For some reason I was even able to convince them that having me do some superhero artwork to hang in the exhibit would be a good idea… can you believe it?!? If you click on the icon above you’ll see the penciled version of my piece from the exhibit (to see the fully inked version you’ll have to visit the museum).

I’ll also be at the DAI every Thursday in August from 5pm until 8pm doing live drawing along with some other local cartoonists so make sure to come visit, hang out and draw with us!

It really is a neat exhibit that I encourage anyone interested in comics and artwork to visit (and if you’re reading this you most likely are). It’s up now and runs through September 23rd. To find out more information check out the Art Institute’s website here.

My buddy Eric and I recently watched the Superman Batman Public Enemies dvd and felt inspired to do our own renditions of the characters. Make sure to check out his post at www.shonborn.net.
