Batman, again

36"x 36"
Oil on canvas
I wasn't happy with the original piece, so I decided to go back and work on it. Changed the eyes and the background. Mixed "newer" Batman w/Adam West Batman.
I once saw Adam West in person at a book signing. Total coincidence, but still cool to see him. He was of course in civilian clothes, but something that struck me funny then, now, and every time I think about it was his shoes. Batman was wearing Birkenstocks. Nothing wrong with them, but I just never envisioned Batman with Birkenstocks.

Well, when you're fighting the villians of Gotham you'd better make sure you have comfortable shoes on. We wouldn't want the Joker getting away due to a nasty blister now would we? ;o)

Another great work Tom. I'm always amazed by how much colour you squeeze into your paintings. It's awesome!
