Reel Honey - Heroes Issue

I'm proud to have created an illustration for the cover of the fall issue of Reel Honey, Heroes.
Reel Honey is an online magazine, focused on film and television and features reviews, critiques and essays by female contributors.
I used a theme inspired by the late Adam West's retro Batman, as I perceive him as a form of ultimate hero; defeating evil without becoming corrupted, while sharing moral lessons of great value.

Fur Baby Alert!
