Spitting Image: I Am Batman

2

071512batman-dngnkSo I have been wanting to do a split face Batman portrait for a long time. I always imagined that if I did draw it I would choose my 2 favorites……Michael Keaton and Adam West. Well the best opportunity presented itself to me and pushed me forward to get this portrait done and off my bucket list. That inspiration was my best friend Regina.

See Regina has been a friend of mine since freshman year of high school. I am the fairy goth mother (aka godmother) of her ava-7th-bday-2016-3daughter Ava Nicole (see that middle name.. its after me).  She was the maid of honor in my wedding.. although she didn’t end up making it down the aisle as she was in the hospital having Ava ha ha. Miles apart or time passes and we are still just as close as we ever were. We have been through so many fun times, got each other through the worse of times and have shared so many milestone moments.

Well, Regina is going through one of those milestone moments right now with the purchase of her very own home. She has been a renter for many years and can finally purchase a house. Knowing her for so long I know what a huge step this is for her and I am super proud of her. I decided to make her the most unique house warming gift I could think of. Seeing she is the biggest Batman fan I know and has been for as long as I have known her, I decided to push myself to do that Batman split portrait for her! All she knew was I was making her something for a housewarming gift but didn’t know of what. That was until I finished it and sent her a photo of it today.

Her reaction “OHHHHHH my god! I LOVE IT!”

I call it “I Am Batman” (as Regina and I both feel these 2 are the real Batmans ha ha). It was done in pencil, charcoal and pastel chalks.

I am looking forward to giving it to her in person this weekend! Prints and t-shirts will be available in my Etsy Shop for you fellow Batman geeks out there!

Spitting Image: 9 Lives

2

I’m back behind the drawing pencil again. It had been way too long.

I had always wanted to do a portrait of Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman. Batman Returns has always been my favorite of all Batman movies (still is). I just felt that Tim Burton brought the Gotham I always invisioned to life if that film. I still even use my Catwoman cup from McDonald’s that I have had since I was a kid. It has been my cup I use when I paint for rinsing my brushes. I just can’t seem to part with it no matter how much paint gets in it ha ha. Am I a huge Batman fanatic … no but I have a lot of love for this film and Michelle’s portrayal of the character. I find her to be the most convincing and sexiest version of Catwoman. Everyone that has tried to play her since just hasn’t fit the bill to me. She was so convincing and fit the role so well that no one seems to compare.

That is until the TV show Gotham. Camren Bicondova as a young Selina is like watching a younger version of Michelle on my TV screen each week. So impressed on the casting of this beautiful and talented young actress. They really couldn not have found any one better for this role. When I see her on Gotham I picture her older self as Michelle’s version of the character in Batman Returns. Which is what inspired this new piece,

I call this one 9 Lives…..
