Discarded Batman Painting - Circa ???

One of the interesting things about my home is the amount of discarded art I find, like this Batman painting. I found this crammed in between a couple of books on the den bookshelf. I really have no idea when it was painted, but I'm guessing sometime in my early twenties. The only reason I came to that conclusion was because - A: It's a painting of Clark Bartram as the version of Batman depicted in the 2003 fan film "Batman: Dead End," and - B: It's gouache paint on heavy watercolor board, which is something I would've been experimenting with when I was EXTREMELY into Alex Ross' art. So my guess is, this was done when I was around 21 or 22 years old. Still not a portfolio piece by any means, but kind of interesting to get the old memories kickin'.


  1. how tall is Batman there? 5'2"? 5'3" maybe?

  2. Aren't you a little short for a Batman? HA! I don't know how tall Clark Bartram is. I know I used a photo of him in his costume as reference, which is another reason this is not a portfolio piece, since it is based off of a pre-existing photo. If you google image "Batman:Dead" End you can see the image.
