Shortly before “The Dark Knight” came out, I was asked if I wanted to do the cover for the entertainment tabloid. I had to decline; I had too many other chores.
Sometimes, if I have to pass up an assignment that I don’t want to pass up, I work on it anyway. I grabbed one of the promo photos and did this as a rough. There was a lot of buzz that Ledger absolutely stole the show, so I considered a layout that would feature the joker. And this is as far as I got.
I like how ghastly and unrefined this looks. I’m glad I didn’t finish it!
