Dark Knight Deco Poster 2012 by PaulSizer Dark Knight Deco Poster 2012 by PaulSizer
This BATMAN idea has been pinging around my brain for a while, decided to get it out. Channeling Wil Eisner and his "buildings as type" motif.

Weird Question i kinda wanted to ask you, Did you so any of the Graphic Design for a Video game called Bioshock?  Its a game placed in the 40s and the style of your posters and art kinda reminds me of that game

I have not, but I am aware of it, and it has been remarked upon before. I don't actually play any video games, so I've had to live vicariously through others who do.

I love this piece! I will admit I am not such a fan of the letter spelling Batman at the top, but that is just a minor personal opinion that in no way harms my over all enjoyment of the piece. Lovely job! c:

Awesome work, both with the BATMAN idea and the aged effect of the paper texture! The combination of deco and our favorite caped crusader also channels a lot of Batman: The Animated Series, which in my humble opinion makes this even better. The one critique I might have is the shape of his body. It looks too much like a woman's hourglass figure, so it's strangely feminine on big, buff Batman. Perhaps tucking in the bottom of his silhouette with strong calves and narrow ankles/feet might look more like him. All in all, I love what you did here and great job!

Interesting point; I didn't really see the negative space as defining his body, just as shadow that his body is in. I actually intended the cape to be way longer than his body, but I can see where you may see this as the shape of his body.
