Christmas Print colored

WELP! here it is. right on time as i promised. hope it was worth the wait. thanks to everyone who expressed excitement and enthusiasm for me to actually get a piece of extraneous artwork done. i had a lot of fun with it (for obvious reasons). many of you found humor within the immediate content, and some of you where able to pull the additional level of humor. basically, this is a call to the line in Batman Begins. it's a pivotal point in Batman's character when he's getting the hang of mastering the art of instilling fear in criminal scum! (it's also a line that Noel and i used to make fun of quite a bit back in the day -- oh, Christian Bale... ::sigh::)

anyway, as i promised, i'm offering 25 signed prints of this guy for $20 each. if you'd like one, please email me. i have a feeling they'll go quickly because i've been posting about this on Facebook, Twitter and Google+, and some people have already been calling dibs. as always, i appreciate your support and enthusiasm.

happy holidays, sucka! and a very Gotham Christmas!

A Very Gotham Christmas 2011

WELP! here it is, fans of optik nourishment. this is the print i promised you all for Christmas 2011. this is the black & white version so you can see it all cleaned up before being colored. (some people like that part of the process.) i want to have the colored version done within the next day or two. in any case, consider this my Christmas present to you all since i've been M.I.A. for so long. my apologies. things have been quite hectic for me, as some of you know. nevertheless, i'm on the rebound and this is my first piece to prove it. hope ya'll dig it. unfortunately, i realized last night after finishing it that i seemed to have drawn this for myself -- whoopsie. in any case, i think i'm going to do 25 signed (color, 8x10) prints of this for anyone out there who digs this as much as i do. let me know if any of you are interested in this. i'll understand if you want to wait to see the colored version, so i'll be sure to annouce when it's done on Twitter, Google+ and Facebook. thanks for staying fans through my brief hiatus, dear friends! happy holidizzays and whatevs.
