Batman: Digital Justice Cover study

As it turns out digging through old files I've started to find hundreds of designs and sketches for the Batman Digital Justice book. At the time all the artwork was just part of the design process and never meant for publication. Looking at this work anew and after all this time (more than 20 years ago) it brings to life an unexpected emotional component. At the time the book came out it was quite a feat to get the computer to work for you (and quite an ordeal to get it into the printing page) so there was an accomplishment factor that was important and hard to dismiss. However now that it’s all common place these hand-sketches seem to capture a raw sense of a unique place and time and look far more interesting to me than the final work. The interesting thing with hand-drawings is that they have the ability to transport you back to the exact place and time your mind was when you were working on them. Let me know if any of this raw stuff is as interesting to you as it is to me. Let me know what you think and if you want to see more.

  1. I would love to see more. As a kid interested in computers and 3d modeling, I saved all my cash to buy this when it came out. It would be great to see the concepts that turned into pages. Thanks!
