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 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.
