BATMAN 1989

I was approached by Warner Bros UK and Athena International (poster company) to execute a portrait of the film version of the 'Batman' hero for a large format poster to be used for the promotion and distribution of the film and a calendar poster for Athena.  I was given two weeks to complete.

It was received with great enthusiasm and went as far as proofing the posters, but unfortunately owing to a contract in the actor's contract (which wasn't raised at the initial briefings), the final work had to be abandoned and replaced with photographic stills from the film.

Needless to say myself and Athena were very disappointed but at least I have a great painting to show for it.

Original size: 79x197 cm (31"x42")

Acrylic inks on illustration board with airbrush.
