Batman Day 2014
As part of the Batman’s 75th anniversary, DC Entertainment declared July 23rd as Batman Day. I’m celebrating a day late with a bunch of old drawings (most of which are from Hub Comics annual gallery show “Dark Knight on a Dark Night”).
Batman Sketch (1999)
Done at WonderCon 1998 or 1999. Scanned and colored some time later. First superhero drawing in years. Can’t remember who I did this for.
Batgirl: Training Day (2011)
Yvonne Craig’s Batgirl getting escape training from Adam West’s Batman. Learn More
Batgirl: Million Dollar Debut (2012)
My homage to “The Million Dollar Debut of Batgirl”, the very first Barbara Gordon/Batgirl story. Learn More
Batgirl: Day of the Batgirl (2013)
Influenced by the 50th anniversary Doctor Who episode “Day of the Doctor” where 3 eras of the same character combine forces. Learn More
Ladybat and the Fanboy in “Tool Talk” (2013)
Ty Templeton Gives Batman the Finger
Due to legal trickery, Bob Kane is soley credited with creating Batman. In truth, Batman was a collaborative effort between Kane and Bill Finger. Veteran cartoonist Ty Templeton draws Batman as created soley by Bob Kane, minus Bill Finger’s input. See The Result

"Enter…General Zaq!" Progress: Page 2 in Color!
I tried sticking to proven Matre Gracia color solutions, but somehow took a few wrong turns into my own voice. It’s hard knowing when not to show off, considering my style template for these modern pages. I’d have to color a lot more pages for this process to get normal. Short of that, I’m an inconsistent mimick at best. Enjoy!
