I found myself with a bit of spare time this week so I had a doodle in honor of Batman's birthday. I'm not a huge Batman fan but I like what different people do when playing in the Dark Knight's sand box. I based this doodle on my favorite animated Batman incarnation from the Gotham Knights anthology. I love the design and that this story isn't really about Batman. It's about the how a group of kids perceive of Batman as this invincible supernatural or technological force and these layers of perception are gradually pealed back to reveal Batman as what he is. A mortal, fallible man. My favorite batman stories are the ones that play with the batman myth like this.
Also the animation, layout and storytelling all kick ass.
