[personal profile] icon_uk posting in [community profile] scans_daily
Over the past few years I'veestablished a personal tradition of a Christmas card for scans_daily. Now I appreciate not everyone celebrates Christmas, but this is intended to express the more general compliments of the season of goodwill and fellowship, which hopefully transcend denominational and theistic opinions.

In the past I've commissioned The Black Cat, who has kindly bent her usual rules about not doing commissions featuring Batman and Sons, but this year, since her output has slowed I felt it would be rude to hassle her about such a thing and went with someone else.

My choice was Leigh Wortley a British arist whose work I have enjoyed since I first saw her tumblr account, and I couldn't be happier with the results, which showcase two of my favourite guys just kicking back and relaxing! :)


Aren't they just adorable? :)

And so in the spirit of fellowship, I'd like to thank all on scans_daily for all they have provided me over the past year, for the cameraderie, the debates, the disagreements, the inspired quirkiness (and the outright kink) the shared geekery and just generally for the FUN of it all. I'm grateful to you all, and would like to wish you and your loved ones every happiness over the coming year!

To those who celebrate Christmas like I do, a Merry Christmas, to those who don't, have a fantastic time in any event!

Oh and just to spread that goodwill further, this seems an ideal time to showcase my most recent Mitch Ballard commission. It struck me that I'd asked im to draw assorted Bayboys in assorted states of peril, but had never just asked for a good old fashioned, Batboys just relaxing. So here to remedy that is a great shot of Dick and Tim taking a break from their patrol, or stakeout, or whatever, and just having a chat as only Batboys can... I LOVE the background here, Mitch has excelled himself with a piece worthy of George Perez's backgrounds!


I can't quite decide if the caption should be them discussing who they've fought on which rooftop within view, "Two Face, Riddler, Kite-Man, Two-Face (again), Clock King, and Catwoman" or something like "You mean Electrocutioner tied you to that lightning rod over there? Me too!".

Feel free to make your own suggestions!

Oh dear and I thought my fear of heights was all gone.

I find myself wanting to secure Timmy to the Gargoil so he doesnt fall.

Not a gargoyle anyway, unless the water spout is very cleverly concealed. Otherwise it's a grotesque.

...and oh that came out way more snide than I thought, sorry. /architecture-geekery

Happy Holidays, Lord Icon_UK! May happiness and joy fill your life and the ones you love. And remember, nothing says "Happy Bondage" than tying your favorite Boy Wonder with the most polychromatic ropes. Caring is loving!
