PEANUTS - THE ART OF CHARLES M. SCHULZ

I was just looking through my copy of the book, PEANUTS - THE ART OF CHARLES M. SCHULZ. Beautifully designed and edited by CHIP KIDD and published by Pantheon in 2001, the book is sensational! If you don't already own this book by now, order it today or go pick it up at your local bookstore! This is certainly a MUST-HAVE book for any PEANUTS fan.

GOTHAM CITY POLICE HQ - 1966 BATMAN TV SHOW

Here's something for the 1966 BATMAN TV show fan! As you know, BATMAN and ROBIN (Adam West and Burt Ward) were shown running up the front steps of Gotham City Police Headquarters at the beginning of many episodes. The "building" is located on the Warner Bros. Studio lot in Burbank, CA. A few years ago, while working as a Character Artist / Inker at Warner Bros. Consumer Products, I walked over to the "building" and took these photos. Being a great fan of the BATMAN TV show, it was neat to see the facade that was Gotham City Police Headquarters. Hope you enjoy seeing the photos! Click on each image for a larger view!
