Description

I have literally been trying for YEARS to get the legendary Mr. Bolland to do a commission for me. He has been so busy and unavailable that nothing came of it until NOW. A huge thanks to Spencer, without whom this would not have been possible. When it became a reality I went for a full on cover quality piece. You would never know that Brian has not worked in pencils and inks for finished pieces in almost a decade. He knocked it out of the park. I won't have the piece in hand until tomorrow but I could not wait any longer.

And for those that are wondering the heads on the wall from left to right top to bottom: Superman, Animal Man, Penguin, Wonderwoman, Robin, Batman, and Batgirl...with some heads just slightly out of camera shot.

I gave Brian a host of ideas for this piece and he picked the most "out-there" and graphic of them all. I was concerned that he would think it too macabre but he took to it like a fish to water. When you have a living legend of an artist who gets excited about a piece he is working on this is what you get....I am beside myself.

I can't even find the words to describe how cool this piece is. I think I'm going to give up getting commissions now knowing that I may never be able to get one as cool as this one is. You are my idol!!!!

Was there a lot of paperwork when you sold your soul to get this piece? :) A fantastic drawing in every respect.

That's just... Wow! "Awesome!" doesn't even come close It's a terrific idea, stunningly executed... Well, what else would expect from Brian Bolland I suppose? (The colour one is great too, but I like the black and white simplicity)

I've said it before and I'll say it again...NOBODY should draw the Joker besides Mr. Bolland. Simply amazing.

I love your themed commissions. This was one of the first commissions I had ever seen when I started collecting, and it prompted me to seek out pieces from my favorites. Thanks for sharing this.

I would have sworn I had commented on this before but I guess I didn't so this is long overdue. This piece is amazing beyond words. Honestly one of the best if not the best purely Joker piece ever. Your "heads on a wall" theme fits the Joker's character and the match of artist to concept has never been better. Brian's Joker has subtly change over the years and I much prefer this classic version. This is grinning, malicious devil reveling in the comedy of death. If you weren't such a great guy I might envy you a little but you did a great job on this. Kudos my friend.

It's amazing that it has been 10 years since you posted this... seems like just yesterday! It's also amazing that I've never commented on this before! Your Trophy Wall theme is a great one; but despite all of the wonderful additions you've added through out the years, there is something truly special about this one. The creepy Joker gas induced smiles of his trophies mirroring his own gaping maw is just a wonderful sight to behold! Thanks for sharing this with all of us, and a very belated congratulations!
