Today is Day 2 of Rooftop‘s showcase on #DCBend! Today’s fantastic artist is Erica Henderson, recently known for Marvel’s Unbeatable Squirrel Girl (side note: read this comic). Erica’s contribution can be summed up in just a few words, David Bowie as Poison Ivy. If you weren’t sold after that, you should probably update your internal software. Similar implications could be made for the others as well. Each redesign seems very realized, with equal parts heart and creativity.

Her choice of celebrity is also exciting and diverse. From Ed Asner (Up, The Mary Tyler Moore Show), Daniel Henry (Big Hero 6), Joan Chen (The Last Emperor, Twin Peaks), Tilda Swinton (Adaptation, Moonrise Kingdom) back to Winona Ryder who we saw yesterday as Dick Grayson, but today plays Superboy. Again the work evokes intense fun, and really plays with the project itself. Stay tuned for even more rad stuff tomorrow! -Patrick

  1. Don’t forget that Ed Asner actually WAS Granny Goodness in the DCAU. I think that’s what his little wink is about.

  2. You’ve accidentally captioned Tilda Swinton as Mr. Freeze as a second David Bowie, under the pic. :)

    And yeah, these are fantastic! The Tilda Swinton piece is what originally caught my attention when these were first being shown around, I immediately had to know more about whatever project or collaboration had resulted in such a perfect piece of art. :D
