Batman & Robin Curse Of The Joker 40s Style Dc Comics Sericel For Sale
Late in 1999, Universal Studios of Central Florida began to wind down a five year investment of transforming Orlando into one of the country's leading centers for television and film production. Though in previous years production groups regularly produced material in town to avoid the high union wages of the west coast, both at Universal and MGM Studios, high players like Viacom pulled out...taking with them the syndicated likes of SeaQuest, Superforce, Swamp Thing, SuperBoy...assorted Wrestling and Roller Derby programs...a live action Tarzan show... To this day, investors and producers remain in courts sorting out the mess. I know little of how they did things at MGM, but I worked for a number of people stationed at Universal's 22A building...host of some twenty-two independent companies.
This is a prototype of a kind of limited edition sericel product one of these companies intended to offer theme park and mall-type shops. The companies did not sign on, andthis artwork, and others like it, were never made available in retail channels.
Is the Joker destinied to have the last laugh after all? This is a beautiful, vintage work of design and illustration.
So far this week...Batman and Robin with the Joker, The Flintstones, Captain Marvel battles the Creature from Green Hell ...more coming!
The line art is printed on an acetate sheet...it is hand painted on the back to render the printed inks opaque. The background an original airbrush painting rendered on a quality cardstock.......the final effect is the stunning 3-D quality of an original animation sericel.....This art is in near mint condition and is matted in white with a cardboard backing. A plastic sleeve covering is included . The artwork viewing area is 8.5 by 11 inches..the mat is larger at 11 by 14 inches. Please see this and my other sales up coming this week for more specialty art material . Enjoy these weird and wonderful representations of the low brow / Juxtapoz art movement, celebrating the surreal, weird art and monster art and of course, good girl aesthetic!
