LEGO Batman

For nearly two years I worked on the Lego Batman film doing various graphics and concept designs. It was an incredibly fun project to work on, and this is just a sample of artwork from the artbook and finished film.

Assorted set-dressing graphics

Assorted set-dressing graphics

Catwoman's security screen; Gotham city crest and police logo; Gala banners; wanted posters in Gordon's office.

Batman bathroom portraits

Batman bathroom portraits

On the walls of Batman's bathroom are many portraits of him doing things the way Batman knows best - alone. At first there was only a couple of portraits, but then more and more were added, which required some creative activity brainstorming (what would Batman do in his spare time?)

Some of the many many posters and set dressing graphics created for Gotham city. Wherever possible we were encouraged to sneak in cameos and references, so there are many small and large references to DC characters and places.

Wayne Manor portraits

Over fifty paintings were created for the decadent dining hall of Wayne manor, ranging from family portraits to famous homages. These are some of the snaps of the Waynes in happier times.

Cockpit surfacing graphics

Cockpit surfacing graphics

Because the world of LEGO is made up of rather chunky bricks, it falls to surfacing graphics to pick up the details. An extensive use of graphics fits out the interior of this cockpit (planes have a lot of switches and gauges it turns out).

Control panel graphics

Batman wardrobe selection screen graphics

Seen at left in frame. A lot of Batman's computer graphics were intended to be low-fi and pixely, so I had a lot of fun making 8-bit Batmen.

Label graphics and Reggae Man costume design. The costume had to tie back to Robin's outfit while still looking like its own costume.

I created the surface detail graphics for a large portion of the vehicles in LEGO Batman, including interior and exteriors (unfortunately they fly by the screen very fast).
