What would a Batman cartoon based on the '66 Batman show be without the secret switch hidden in the Shakespeare bust? This bust was hand drawn by "Batman: The Return of the Caped Crusaders" lead character designer Dusty Abell and painted by me. Visit Dusty's site for more cool stuff HERE:
This was one of the few portrait paintings that were hanging in Wayne Manor backgrounds. We had a Thomas Wayne portrait and a portrait of Bruce Wayne's grandfather, so I thought that the original '66 show would have went even more fun with the family portraits. Of coarse the Wayne family would've had a pirate as an ancestor at some point, so "One-eyed Wayne" was born. Totally not cannon in the Batman lore, but hey, he's got a parrot, so that's cool.
