I have to admit, I get let down and frustrated sometimes by the incessant mashing-up of 80s properties by artists, designers and toy makers.

Hey folks. I just wanted to share this awesome Batman and Robin illustration I discovered a while ago.   It’s a piece by renowned illustrator, Thomas Perkins, who’s depicted Bootleg Batman and Space Flyman in their own animated series. Thomas even credits “Laundry Day with Batman and Robin” as his inspiration. I love it!   […]
