Hi there, just stopping by to embarrass a couple friends...

After watching Scott's video elsewhere on the board, I began to reminisce about years past and all the fun and good times that have been had here with these crazy bat fans. Me, being a graphic designer (sorta) and having way too much free time (no longer the case), would put together all sorts of "retro" vignettes using the photos Scott would post about his earlier adventures. Much of the "greatest hits" of this work you'll find in my section of the "member artwork" section of this site. There are some items not found there that I wanted to share. Some fun, some silly, some dreams of what we were hoping for (and now mostly have). I hope you derive even just a smidgen of the enjoyment we have had here over the years. To the Bat-Gallery!

The Bat Cap - my answer to all the ludicrous modern-day Batman apparel.

Of course, you can't wear a stylin' cap like that without having some tunes to listen to, right?
Image

A quick logo redraw I did on a whim for our Bat-pal, Wally Wingert
Image

An ad-mockup I did for our resident cowl/costume aficionado, Chuck Williams. This was before Williams Studio 2 existed, I believe.
Image

My concept of what the "deluxe" DVD set might look like, if we were to ever see such a set. Obviously, we all enjoy BATMAN nowadays on many types of media. T'was not so "back in the day".
Image

Let the silliness ensue!
Image

And finally, me exploring the avant garde. Take that, Joker!

Oh Yeah, as far as the "embarrassing friends" title, here ya go!

Back when Ben was the "new kid on the block":

And the always disturbing greeting from your moderators...

Some serious blasts from the past. You know, the monocle look really does work on Ben. But man, he hasn't been that baby faced clean shaven in years.

I know, right. The "kid" can outgrow me any day with the facial hair. Kinda irks me. And speaking of facial hair, you lose your bic shaver? :lol:

The looming sense of dread was already palpable before I even clicked to open this thread...

...LOVE YOU GUYS! :lol:
