elliot still has many enemies

Some of you might remember this sketchbook post from last July wherein I drew Elliot in the tub saying what I thought was a strange non-sequitur

which I quickly remembered to be a line from the Batman picture book Batman: The Story of the Dark Knight by Ralph Consentino.

When I realized Mr. Consentino had a website, I dropped him a line with the comic to let him know how much Elliot loved his book and Ralph offered to draw Elliot something for being a super-Batfan. This was a very gracious of Ralph and Elliot decided to ask for a Batman sketch.

Well, wouldn’t you know it, look what showed up on our doorstep last week:

Ralph, if you’re reading this, I want to say thanks. Elliot went ballistic when he saw that you “wrote him a letter” and we’re in the process of getting the sketch framed to hang in his room.

Mr. Consentino has a new website that you should all check out. You should also pick up his books. Besides Batman, he’s illustrated Superman: The Story of the Man of Steel and a forthcoming Wonder Woman picture book. They make great gifts for young readers.

  2. […] about my son Elliot’s love of Ralph Consentino’s Batman: The Story of the Dark Knight, to the point where he has the book memorized and will quote it for you in odd places. I got in touch with Ralph and he generously sent Elliot a lovely drawing of the Dark Knight […]

  3. I envy you`r son.
