Music for Bats [Nov. 23rd, 2011|05:18 pm]

[Tags|, , , , , ]

Hey pals, I am such a huge, huge fan of this musical project that I am going to post about it. At length. It's seriously worth a quick, casual listen, and it's downright delicious for people who are into backstory.

An album of music inspired by Batman,
his acquaintances, loves, and foes

by Maiden Names

♪ Listen to and/or purchase Alexa and Mark’s Batman-inspired album, Blackout Shades, at the Maiden Names’ Bandcamp!

♪ Learn about Alexa's inspirations and thoughts on the Dark Knight in a special installment of the Make Believers podcast!

♪ Watch the Jonathan Crane/Scarecrow music video, directed by my boyfriend Neil Cicierega, at yoursuffering.com or below:

This is a project that's been over a year in the making. Alexa is a talented visual artist as well as a gifted songwriter and singer, who happens to have an abiding interest in the cast of characters who populate Gotham.

Here's a track listing, along with who/what the songs are about:

1. Love Your Enemy (Joker)
2. American Hero (Two-Face)
3. Your Suffering (Scarecrow)
4. Stop Bleeding (Batman)
5. Blackout Shades (Alfred)
6. Come Down to Earth (Poison Ivy)
7. Eyeblack (Bruce Wayne)
8. I'm Your Bitch (Harley Quinn)
9. No Slack (Catwoman)

character: the wonder and super women of DC.
rating/warnings: hot like hephaestus's forge and krypton's young sun.
media: pen, ink, & ps7
artist's note: this is a reworking of an earlier series of drawings.

the real power.Collapse )

i also recently went back and tagged every entry in my journal, so if you only want to look at pictures of the original boy wonder, his surly mentor or bad eggs, now you can!

and now,
♪♪♪ call!
if you have any comics-inspired playlists or songs of the moment, share the love around! just random good old-fashioned music recommendations are accepted as well. i'll start. here's a song for mr. bruce wayne.

[Current Music |ed harcourt - like only lovers can]

who would you rather be entangled in some variety of hypothetical romantic interest with, harvey dent before his two-face transition, or "bruce wayne" at any point after his world wanderings with the catch that you'd never know about the other side of the proverbial coin?

i'm honestly stuck on which option would be the more perfect setup for a psychological horror movie.

american psychos

speaking of setups, this one is coming weeks in advance but i'll be attending the new york comic-con next month. i'm going with my pal lex in costume (UH HUH THASSRIGHT), so we should be easy to spot if you want to say hi! just look for the lanky blonde and sturdy half asian in various states of ridiculousness. more on that later.

you may remember my adventures at last year's nycc. i have the option of using the professionals' entrance this time around, but i'll probably wait in the regular line with lex in case any more potential hilarity gold decides to spice up my life. maybe i'll run into my little chum again. fingers crossed, guys!

edit: GOTHAM KNIGHT! the theme music is so swoopy and dire. i adore it so.

'Lady Gotham' DVD commentary. [Oct. 23rd, 2007|11:38 am]

Originally posted March 2nd, 2007, Lady Gotham was the first thing I drew, sequential or otherwise, straight out of art school. As such I would do everything differently if I were to draw it again, but ain't that always the way? Here are some of the things I was thinking, reading, and seeing as I worked on this glamorous mess.

Character: Martha Wayne
Rating/warnings: Melancholic foreboding.
Media: Pen, ink, & ps7
Artist's note: Growing up is hard to do.

Lady Gotham, Mrs. Wayne; the papers are calling me by these new names.Collapse )

media: pen, ink, & ps7

metrosexual, qu'est-ce que c'est?Collapse )

'lady gotham', dc fancomic, 6 pages. [Mar. 2nd, 2007|07:51 pm]

character: martha wayne
rating/warnings: melancholic foreboding.
media: pen, ink, & ps7
artist's note: growing up is hard to do.

i've been working on this short comic on and mostly off for the past couple of months. it's just a small tone poem, and a little glimpse into a lonely woman with her eye on the prize and one foot in the grave. since batman's mom is basically a character that canon forgot beyond guilty flashbacks, i thought it would be interesting to try my hand at fleshing her out a bit. i found myself feeling very sympathetic towards her and wanting her to have a happy life with her husband. bruce seems to think that she did, so here's hoping.

lady gotham, mrs. wayne.Collapse )
