the old 1966 Batman television series starring Adam West and Burt Ward has been a huge source of inspiration for me in my illustrative work. When I first saw the show around 1988 -- a year before Tim Burton's Batman was to be released -- I remember racing home everyday to watch it (much like children would have done back in the sixties, I assume).
Anyway, these images are of a "Super Villain" I created that I hope would have fit perfectly within that television utopia. The villain's name is the Weather Man, and if I had it my way the character would have been played by Robert Goulet.
I really liked The Weather Man's goons in the fourth piece. Their names: Celsius and Fahrenheit, respectively.
