Artist Bruce Timm is best known for his superhero animation and comics work, but this cartoon shows his mastery of Good Girl Pinup Art, and the gaggle of Frankenstein Zombies channels 50s Horror Comics and B-Monster Movies. Timm’s art is so dynamic, I don’t think he could draw a straight line without making it look like it was moving at a 100 MPH.
The art is from the great Arglebargle blog. Click over to see a monster montage of Timm’s work, including takes on Vampirella, his cover for The Little Shop of Horrors magazine, and more Frankenstein art, including a straight painting that would have looked good on the classic Famous Monsters magazine, and a stunning Karloff Frankenstein caricature.
Timm is a fan favorite, having served as designer, producer and director on the legendary Batman: The Animated Series of the 90s, the show that raised the bar way high for all the superhero cartoon shows that followed. He has also collected Eisner Awards for his comic book jobs.
By the way, the Bizarro sketch at right reminds us who the character is really based on, doesn’t it?
