I’m thrilled to announce my participation in tonight’s DC Comics x Mondo Gallery group show: Mondo Celebrates 75 Years of Batman. The show includes a top notch roster of talent, and I’m honored to be included. In Mondo’s words:
In celebration of the 75th Anniversary of Batman, we are proud to present a gallery show featuring artwork inspired by the DC Comics hero. The exhibit will include posters and original artwork from over 30 artists inspired by various incarnations of Batman from comics, Batman 1966, Tim Burton’s Batman, Batman: The Animated Series and The Dark Knight trilogy.
My piece: “Man of Bats” is my take on the caped crusader in a more literal fashion, and is a kind of blend between Batman and Manbat. It was a fun one to make, float-mounted with a custom, hand sculpted frame (note the logo in the bottom, center) with collaged pages from actual Batman comics in the float-frame background. I won’t be able to attend the show, but if you’re in the Austin area, you should definitely check it out! Full show details at the bottom.
Enjoy the show!
