I asked a few artists recently for commissions of Grips, to get an idea of how different artists would ‘see’ the character and all. One of those Moby commissioned was a personal favorite, Andy Fish.
Andy has a great blog site, Fish Wrap, where he shares his passion for vintage creature movies and vintage Batman along with tips for those looking to make a career in the art world, particularly freelance artists. As a collector, his insights and advice help me to understand those who create all the wonderful stuff the rest of us glance at for a few seconds before we turn the page, to appreciate the art and the artists that little bit more.
Below is the commission Moby received, and it’s a pretty darn good one too! I count three decapitations and at least one severed limb. Just beautiful, eh?

Andy also sent along a few extras including a real nice Batman and even a color Rocket Raccoon. Thanks Andy!
