Batman Shreds

batman shreds

This is a painting done from a screen capture off a Youtube video I was watching.  I sorta’ like it.  All Photoshop

I don’t really know how I found it…but on Youtube, I saw a clip from the 1967 Batman TV show, where Batman gets into a surf contest against the Joker.  Here’s a spoiler…Batman wins.  He wins because he got 50 points for spraying Bat-Shark Repellent at a shark that was inserted into the scene.  You go, Batman!  This was one of those classic surfer stereotypes of the 60’s.  Batman and Joker paddle out into a micro-surf swell…around knee high.  Then they both take off on the same wave, paddling on their knees (old school…and ouch)….but then we cut to the blue screen where Adam West and Cesar Romero act like they’re balancing on boards…and the wave on the screen behind them is double overhead.  Like I said…it’s classic stuff.

Anyway…if you care, the here’s the video too:

The Velveteen Rabbit

A while back I made a roll-in video for a Sunday morning teaching.  I used a section from the children’s book The Velveteen Rabbit, by Margery Williams.  I drew all the illustrations, then panned across them and lap fadded them to give it a slightly animated feel.  Anyway…here are a few of the illustrations from that project.
