More Batman sneaky peeky


Hello again Batfans! I know it's been a while since I posted any of my Batman project, what can I say but sorry folks, I mean you no harm!

I'm so close now to finishing the first book (of two), can't believe it's taken me a year to get this far. But then, I hadn't expected to be co-employed with looking after a little daughter who is so full of energy she puts our very Sun to shame! So I've got two jobs, both of which I've been waiting for most of my life. It's been an incredible learning experience. On one hand, becoming a Dad after twenty years of wanting the job has opened my eyes to say the least and has made me the person I was cut out to be. On the other hand, the Batjob is seriously the best project I've ever worked on. That's not taking anything away from the work I've done in the past, it's simply that this is something quite different and something again that I've been waiting a long time to achieve.

So here's some edited images from my Batbook. And I promise to be a little more blog productive in future!

Very, very exciting work, Dave. It's no surprise to hear you say you've wanted to do Batman forever. It shows!

Many thanks Nelson. But the fact is that I have worked on Batman many times (apparently unnoticed by some!). This book though is not only a new beginning but a chance at last to show how I always thought Batman should be seen.

Oops! I actually knew that. Brain like a sieve.

Your work on Batman:Shadow of the Bat was a high point in its run as far as I am concerned.
