Drawing like Batman and Robin

Batman-and-robin
Here’s a fun drawing by Jim Carrillo who tweets at @SonofWagonWheel. It’s a mashup from one of my videos where I went drawing city buildings with Sarah Silverwood Taylor.

It’s great fun to sketching with another artist, to learn what motivates them, where they are coming from and pick up a few tips along the way.

Me-and-BatmanSarah is very influenced by comic books and likes to imagine herself as Batman or Spiderman sitting on top of a building surveying the city below. This idea must have caught Jim’s imagination, so he has turned Sarah and I into the Dynamic Duo in the Batcave – I particularly like how my glasses have turned into Robin’s mask!

During our day together drawing, Sarah and had an idea for an art project which we may well pursue when she get back from drawing the city of Chicago. The we really would be a dynamic duo!

Here’s another picture, my proudest moment – meeting the real Batman!
