Working with DC Comics has always been a thrill. I first became connected to them after working on a collector cup series for McDonald's. My work had to be approved by DC Comics before being hired to do the work.
I had the great privilege to step onto two Batman film sets in Los Angeles and London respectively, while working on projects. The visits were to research costumes, sets, and read scripts that were under lock and key. Everything is kept highly confidential during development. Seeing sets for a high-production film is awe-inspiring. It’s a wonderful way to kick off a project and become consumed by the energy that goes into super hero film making.
The silhouetted figures are often incorporated into other backgrounds. The portability of the figures is important so they can be used in the broadest capacity. The 30+ pieces of artwork for a film are compiled into a “Style Guide” that specifies guidelines for use.
Some of the work using the DC Comics property is commissioned by third parties such as McDonald’s and OnStar that both developed their own campaigns. As an approved DC Comics illustrator, it’s assumed that I am familiar with the intellectual property and I will be respectful of the brand.
