Wall Street Journal Hedcut of Christian Bale as Batman

Wall Street Journal hedcut of Christian Bale by Randy GlassWith “The Dark Knight Rises” opening worldwide this weekend – posting my portrait of Christian Bale as Batman seems like a no-brainer today. This hedcut was actually created for The Wall Street Journal back in the summer of 2005 for Christopher Nolan’s first film in the trilogy – “Batman Begins”.

I very rarely used solid blacks in my drawings for the Journal…as a matter of fact – we were encouraged not to. I played around with different dot techniques and patterns trying to simulate the mask’s distinctive rubbery surface and finally decided to make this an exception.

And – I’m really looking forward to seeing the new film!
