Old Bizarro Commission

From 2007. This piece was a real challenge because the commissioner started the series with Brian Bolland's inspired Joker Trophy Wall masterpiece. He asked me to do something similar with Bizarro but I couldn't think of a worthy variation on Brian's theme. I did dozens of sketches, only two of which are shown here, then finally came up with a peculiar idea which seemed to work.


  1. Hi Kevin
    I love this picture, and the Kandor bottle is a great plus.

  2. Heh, I think the hands holding up the wall is actually the funniest part. Lol. And yeah, the Kandor bottle plus his smug kind of face is interesting.

  3. A terrific idea...and best execution!!!
    Congrats! I really love the result...

  4. This is a funny illustration..How does one go about getting a commission from you?Respectfully,Kevin Hare []

  5. Well done in the layout sir.... :)
    Love the hands holding the backboard.
    Cheers & peace for 2011.
    Looking forward to a classic Doom Patrol with the chief or Guardian News Boy Legion piece here soon.-sP-

  6. Man, I wish I could draw! This is amazing!

  7. Thanks, guys! I'm glad you enjoyed the humor in this one. I don't think I've ever waited so long for inspiration to strike.

    Mookie59: I'll contact you privately but I'm not sure how much time I'll have for any new commissions... at least not for a while.
