Batman: Winter in Gotham

I am sure that there is something not quite right about drawing Batman inside my book...but it is a sketch...just a fan sketch. The inspiration came from a woodcut I saw of a winter scene done back in the 1890's. I thought the high contrast black/white was a perfect environment for Batman. I could do a whole story like that ;)

Continuing the same train of thought:

Wouldn't it be funny if these sketches led to your doing a Batman book? And then if a kid came up to you at a convention and asked you to do a Robotica sketch in your Batman book.

Incredible. So graphic. So cool.

Wow. I gotta say, Alex, there's something about the way you draw Batman - not just these but others I've seen as well - that I really REALLY like. Someone a DC needs to see this stuff and offer you a gig.

These are something special.

Thank you guys for the kind words of support :)

Batman is fun to draw. A few months ago I came-up with a Batman story (actually more of a Bruce Wayne) that I did layouts for and was thinking as doing it as a submission...but then I found out that Bruce Wayne was dead and the air just sort of went out of the whole thing. Someday....
