The Joker

For a private commission. I enjoyed this a lot; the drawing itself is relatively simple but the smashed mirror makes it something special. I bought 3 mirrors and tried to smash them so I could figure out how to get a great smash. Turns out you cant control the way a mirror smashes so had to make it up through trial and error. For me the Joker (and batman for that matter) are basically unhinged people, simply insane, and a mirror is a great way to show this, from Twin Peaks to Rollins, a smashed mirror is used to represent a myriad or fractured and intense emotions....yawn....It just looks cool. More to follow.
