70 Aspects Of Batman: 19


BILL SIENKIEWICZ

From Wikipedia:

Boleslav Felix Robert “Bill” Sienkiewicz [pronounced sin-KEV-itch][2] (born May 3, 1958,[1][3]) is an Eisner Award-winning American artist best known for his comic book work, primarily for Marvel ComicsThe New Mutants and Elektra: Assassin. Sienkiewicz often utilizes oil painting, collage, mimeograph and other forms generally uncommon in comic books. Sienkiewicz broke into the comics business at age 19[5] with an art style heavily influenced by Neal Adams’ work.

In addition to his work in comics, Sienkiewicz has also worked in numerous other media. In 1995, he illustrated the Martin I. Green biography of Jimi Hendrix, Voodoo Child: The Illustrated Legend of Jimi Hendrix. The following year he provided the artwork for the Bruce Cockburn album The Charity of Night, and went on to provide album covers for RZA‘s Bobby Digital in Stereo (1998) and EPMD‘s Business as Usual (1990).

Sienkiewicz hasn’t done a huge amount of Batman work, unfortunately. He did contribute some interior pages to Batman #400, an anniversary issue that featured various artists:

He also wrote and drew a story for the original Batman:Black & White miniseries. In the last decade or so, Bill has drawn various covers for the Dark Knight (most recently for the Batman: Widening Gyre miniseries written by Kevin Smith), and has inked random issues here or there.

He also painted the below cover for a movie adaptation that didn’t deserve his talent:

And drew some sketches based on a movie that was worth his talents:

two movies with tilda swinton, and bonus point brad pitt

oh man, guys, i can’t wait to see this gem, it looks like it is really going to be a gem. it’s directed by david fincher, who did panic room, zodiac and ha, some thing about aerosmith, and it’s based on a story by f. scott fitzgerald who wrote some stuff back in the day, like the great gatsby. the story is about a man who ages backwards, i.e. from old man to little man! did i mention that brad pitt’s daughter shiloh is going to be in this film? reason to see it right there. plus, come on…huge bonus of cate blanchett. comes out in december.

the curious case of benjamin button

second movie, which looks great but i could be partial to the coen brothers, george clooney, brad pitt, tilda swinton, john malkovich, the dad from juno, and every other part of this movie so actually i think it’s going to be pretty good and it’s not just my partiality. comes out in september, not soon enough.
