Disneyland Tiki Bird Kevin Kidney
artDisney

One of my all-time favorite Disney attractions is the Enchanted Tiki Room. The audio-animatronic attraction first opened in 1963, and featured 77 birds, 136 flowers and 12 tiki drummers. There’s something about the singing birds and a room that comes alive that always brings a smile to my face. The birds have been updated over time, but some of the original birds are out there and need to be restored.

The Doctor Strange movie will be upon us sooner than we think, and the mere thought of the coming movie had me jump into the Internet looking for a cool piece of Doctor Strange art. I found a really nice one by Christopher Stevens.

I wanted to follow a favorite of a favorite of a favorite, but got distracted by the whole Batman v Superman turn over the last couple of days. Fortunately, I can go down the DeviantArt rabbit hole, and keep the Batman theme, with this tiny team-up between Iron Man and Batman, thanks to this wonderfully fun piece by Jon Sommariva.

If you’re gonna feature Batman in the Art Appreciation Moment of the Day (especially in this election season), you’d better feature his opponent, Superman. Thanks to Francesco Francavilla it’s simple to fulfill the equal time requirement.

One of the nice things about Deviant Art is it gives you the ability to see who other artists are following. And, if you spend enough time going down that rabbit hole, you will see what inspires and motivates the artist. On Friday we took a look Niken Anindita’s wonderful work, and today, we take a look at someone she favorited – Jereme Peabody.

This week, we took at look at Sunstone Volume 1 from Stjepan Sejic on the Major Spoilers Podcast. While I love the art in the book, most of it is something I can’t show you without getting a ton of flack from those who can’t handle the nude form, and only visit this site when there is chance they might see a boob so they can complain. Instead, here’s a sketch of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy that Sejic shared on one of his Deviant Art pages.

I continue to think about a Legion of Super-Heroes television series, and how it would A) be so easy to create, and B) be a slam dunk for The CW. There’s also a C, but that requires Greg Berlanti to hire Matthew Peterson and me to run the show for him.  When I think about LoSH, I also think about Gene Gonzales, who has created wonderful sketches of the team members over the years.  Today, we present his take on Matter-Eater Lad.

When I was in middle school in the early ’80s, I was really into unicorns. Like, scary obsessed. My bedroom walls were covered in posters and calendar pages. It was one of the many things that separated me from my male peers. I was recently reminded of this because I had occasion to pull from a dusty and neglected section of my bookshelves a unicorn coloring book that I owned back then.

Karl Kerschl may be gone from Gotham Academy, but his work still comes to mind anytime I see the Gotham Academy title. So, today, let’s take a look at something awesome Karl has created.
