Des Taylor Evokes Golden Age Animation in Colorful Superhero Illustrations [Art]
Batman: The Animated Series made classic, Golden Age-era animation look cool again, and Des Taylor’s artwork wields the same vintage, expressive charm. Taylor shared some pages from his own comic, The Legend of the Blue Lotus, earlier this month, and the character shares a name with a classic Tintin story, as well as an appearance that looks like it evolved right out of a ’90s Batman episode.Taylor’s faux magazine covers and other wonders can be viewed on his Despop blog, where you’re bound to see the glow of some of exposure to John Romita and lots of ’50s pinup art. He draws a youthful Superman to be reckoned with, as well as a fine Invisible Woman.
From Neo to the Invisible Woman, Taylor might as well be making treatments for everything we’d ever want to wake up to over sugar-laced cereal on Saturday morning.
