Jokers Wild by Anthony McCracken

iPad Cases

Available to buy on…

I’ve always been interested in Henri Matisse’s paintings and Andy Warhol’s colors and portraits so I thought I’d take that approach to creating my portrait of The Joker as played by Heath Ledger in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight. I thought it’d be a cool way to bring in the colors of the older Jokers from past portrayals throughout the history of Batman. Something a little more wild using splatters, a technique that always reminds me of Jack Nicholson as the Joker, gleefully defacing an art museum in the Tim Burton version.

Born in Northern California, I’ve made and studied art most of my life and my favorite things to make are from darker tones and subjects. Since I was very young I’ve pushed myself through requests, so feel free to ask me for a personal work.

    Superb art work.. one of my all time fave characters.. :-)):-)

  • Thank you so much, Dave!! I’m so glad you like it!! Indeed he is one of my all time favorite characters as well! I could do a few portraits of him each year and come up with something dramatically different each time which speaks so much to how much was put into this version of the Joker to me. Thanks again!! :-))))
