“To the BATCAVE, Robin!” My Tribute to Adam West

Posted in HeroesCon2017 with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 15, 2017 by DaveandDeniseDorman

Dear Friends,

Like many of you, I was sad to lose my childhood Batman, Adam West. How cool it was to see the Batman come to life in living color on TV for my 8-year-old self. Adam West, like Batman, has become an icon for generations to come. He will be missed.

I have had a pencil piece of West’s Batman finished for about a year awaiting time to paint it. When I finish the painting, it will turn out to be a tribute piece now, with his passing.

I have combined the elements of West as Batman with the true memories I have of the original Batcave, not the “1966 modern” take from the show. I think he fits in very well. I will be doing this painting on Facebook Live and possibly Periscope as well.

“To the BATCAVE, Robin!”

P.S. I will be at HeroesCon in Charlotte, NC this weekend, so look me up if you’re around!

Dear Friends,

Thanks to all who stopped by to say “hello” during HeroesCon this past weekend in Charlotte, NC. As always, it was a lot of fun and the show really emphasizes comics. I procured a few more surprise guests for my podcast, which you will all really be excited to hear speaking uninhibitedly, which we tend to encourage on our show, “It’s Comic Book Day,” free to you on iTunes. To link to our podcast, or as Denise calls it, “Radio On Demand,” click here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/id373866909

As promised, here is some more Buckaroo Banzai art I did for Moonstone Comics, based here in Chicago. Can you tell I really love painting tentacles?

The Pensacola Film Festival Painting I Did

Posted in DAVE DORMAN NEWS with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 3, 2010 by DaveandDeniseDorman

Dear Friends,

Many of you probably recall that I lived in  Shalimar, Florida for 25+ years, which is sort of in between Destin, Florida and Pensacola, Florida. Shalimar is almost like of a suburb of Fort Walton Beach.  It was the only “home” I’ve ever known for that length of time, growing up as a military kid. As you can imagine, I am watching the oil spill situation with a heavy heart, as those sugar beaches — literally bright white, powdery sand–are about to be hit by the ugliness of the oil spill.

My friend Tom Roush started the Pensacola TV and Film Festival, along with the help of Pensacola’s former film commissioner and a great supporter of the arts, Denise Daughtry. (A special thanks to the 501st Garrison down there for ushering me into the film festival that year…) For Tom and Denise, I created this piece, which they used as their promo poster a few years back. This shows the real color of the water on the “Emerald Coast,” which is how it gets its name.  Again, this is a rarely-seen look at some art that I created that didn’t really get released beyond our local film festival. It will be in my new book, “Rolling Thunder: The Art of Dave Dorman” (IDW Publishing/Desperado Publishing) as well. You can pre-order my new book here:http://www.amazon.com/Rolling-Thunder-Art-Dave-Dorman/dp/1600108229

Let me know what you think of this piece. For those who have often suggested/insisted  my wife Denise was the inspiration for this piece (Steve Baker), yes, it’s true.

For the Buckaroo Banzai fans reading this, I will be doing some more Buckaroo Banzai work in the next few months, and I will keep you posted on that. I will have my original Buckaroo Banzai paintings with me this weekend at HeroesCon in Charlotte, NC.

Thanks for reading & please pray for the animals, beaches, people & their livelihoods on the coastal region,

Dave.
