Norman Rockwell’s Batman

A fun find today. Mark dos Santos works for Pasadena’s Comics Factory and, in his spare time, channels his inner Normal Rockwell to create gems like these. I love these reinterpretations of Rockwell’s Saturday Evening Post covers; especially the first one in which dos Santos matches every pose and table item. His masthead title, likely also hand-drawn, is a close match for the classic Post typeface with a few noticeable differences. Overall a unique characterization of our favorite Bob Kane creations. And even better, dos Santos offers up 11×17 prints of these and others (including comic character takes on the art of Alphonse Mucha) for only $10 a piece on his website.
