My Still Life

I'm taking this basic drawing class in college (it's a long story) and our homework the second week was to "draw a still life with personal significance..." so I drew one that encompassed a few of the things that are important to me: A spring toy my son gave me one Father's Day, which signifies my family, a mask worn by Chris O'Donnell in the movie Batman and Robin, which signifies my love of film, my TiVo remote, which signifies my love of good television and techy gadgets, The Phantom #69, which signifes my love of comics and Don Newton's work, and my set of Unison pastels, which signify my love of artwork.

Barry, I sincerely hope that it doesn't signify your love of that film. I would really have to worry about you.

No, I had a friend who knew I was a big comic book and Batman fan and someone had given him the O'Donnell mask from off the Warner's lot. It didn;t hold any significance to him and he knew I would enjoy owning it, so he gave it to me.

I don't know how many of these things they used while filming, but it seems pretty durable and not very mass-produced.
