The Evolution of Batman in Caricature Format

I think we may have featured the work of Anthony Geoffroy on this site before simply because I feel like we had to have.   His caricatures are by far some of the best I’ve seen.  Recently I came across some more of his work on Behance and the series he put together on Batman was dead on perfect.

I don’t know how he did it but he managed to bring out some great qualities in Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and of course Christian Bale.  If this first picture you’re looking at above isn’t any indication then I don’t know what is.

Check out the other four after the jump….

  1. GrandWazoo I dont think you fully grasp what a caricature is. Features are meant to be exaggerated but retain the likeness of the subject. I could tell who the actors were straight away. Really awesome art and caricatures in my opinion.

    I know what a caricature is. Even with that in mind, I think those lips look awful. You can exaggerate something without making it look as bad as that. I just don’t like the first two pictures. It’s fine that you do. I thought this was America, where I was allowed to have and voice my opinion.

  3. I’m with GrandWazoo on this one. I’m a caricaturist as well — although not as technically proficient as Mr. Geoffroy — and the only one I could even remotely identify by face alone was Clooney. It’s like he grabbed the “Cartoonish Wackiness” knob and twisted it until it fell off.

  4. The only spot he really fell short is the Bale one… Christian Bale’s Batman never closes his mouth, because that cowl blocks his nose like a diving mask, so he keeps his lips pursed to breathe (and looks like a tard whenever he’s not speaking, as opposed to sounding like one).

  5. I’m with MetFanMac and GrandWazoo.

    There’s caricatures, where you can tell who it is supposed to be of, and then there is over-the-top.

    These are the latter, and really atrocious and over-done.
