|Original sketch and color tests.|
Driving to my studio I suddenly had the idea for this Bat-shaped mouth and I had to pull over. I felt I had to sketch it out right there or risk adding it to my ever-growing list of my forgotten cover ideas.
I'm glad I did.
Eventually it came time for me to work up a pitch for the cover of Batman and Robin #15. I remembered my little drawing in the sketchbook so dug it out and got it ready to sent it off to my editor Rachel Gluckstern and the rest of the Bat-editors. I was very relieved to be given the green light.
