The World's Greatest Detective

Happy 2007 everyone!

I’ve been thinking lately how I miss reading comic books. I used to spend SO much time and money buying, studying and drawing comics.

I first got hooked on comics at Steve’s house, reading ‘A Death in the Family’ - the storyline in which Robin is killed. In 2002, I pretty much stopped ‘cold turkey’. (It was easy. I was totally broke.) I’ve never really got back into buying them.

Since I’m living half a world away from my comic collection at the moment, it has been a long while since I read any of them. It’s been even longer since drew anything related to comics. So, I thought I’d pump out a Batman image. My style has changed a lot, but he’s still fun to draw!

  8. Oh man, I'm happy I stumbled across your Batman. He put a smile on my face (but don't tell him that.)

    Great bat-shaped composition. Looking forward to more interpretations like this.

    This illustration is really great. The colors, mood and texture really give me a sense of the surroundings and the serious nature of Batman's next mission. Although cute and cuddly, I'm sure this Batman will make the guilty pay with reckless abandon. Brilliant!
