This art was inspired by “Be A Clown,” a hugely popular episode in the first season of the Batman: The Animated Series television show. In this scene Batman tracks his main nemesis, The Joker, to an abandoned fairground, where he confronts the cunning clown in a death-defying battle atop a runaway roller coaster.
This art was inspired by a piece of “concept” art from the development of the award-winning show. It was part of a body of work that helped evolve the now-famous “Bruce Timm style” character design, which was an ultra-modern, dramatic, angular and graphic departure from all previous representations of The Dark Knight.
“Be a Clown” was originally released in 1993 as a hand-painted limited edition animation art cel and quickly sold out. As part of the 75th Anniversary of Batman’s creation an anniversary edition on canvas has been created.
The original art for “Be A Clown” was drawn and painted by the Warner Bros. Animation Studio, under direction by Bruce Timm. Each print is signed by Bruce Timm
