Artist Andrea Rhodes Takes Batman Fan Art To A Whole New Level

Screen Shot 2013-04-29 at 12.17.33 AM

My first introduction to Fresno, CA artist Andrea Rhodes was this image below.  I was instantly hooked and had to know more about her work. Turns out I’m not the only one who thinks her work is outstanding.  After looking at her resume it revealed that she interned at Pixar on UP and she now works for Lucas Animation.  (Not bad references if you ask me.)

Andrea-Rhodes-BatmanWe reached out to her with a few questions and this is what she had to say.

BLURPPY: We LOVE your fan art, do you ever sell it?

Andrea: As of right now I’m not set up to sell my art, but I hope to be very soon. I’ve been working full time at Lucasfilm for the past 4 years, and I created my batman artwork for a charity auction fundraiser event–but now I have more time to focus on my artwork, so stay tuned!  Maybe one day I will be able to make my vision of Batman into an official DC thing…..until then 🙂




Harley Quinn

BLURPPY: Will you be making it to this years San Diego Comic Con to share your wares with the masses?

Andrea: Not at the moment but I am working on starting an etsy shop–check my blog for updates! Unfortunately no Comic Con booth for me this year, that may change–watch blog for any news on that, I will let you know!


BLURPPY: Besides your husband’s work, whose work do you love?

Andrea: I love Lane Smith the children’s book Illustrator–he is a huge influence for me along with Edmund Dulac. Richard Williams blows my mind with awesomeness! I LOVE Mike Mignola and Frank Frazetta. Tim Burton’s Batman’s were all I watched as a kid and all I love now–that and the Animated Series.

BLURPPY: What is one things that fans should know about you?

Andrea: I want to be an astronaut but I’m afraid of flying, so I’ll draw them and Batman instead 😉
