Some men just want to watch the world burn. — Alfred Pennyworth

Did you knew that the late Heath Ledger acted on The Dark Knight? Because honestly, I never saw him in the movie. As writer/director/fanboy Kevin Smith said, the actor completely disapeared behind the Joker character.

Every line of dialog, every gesture, everything from this character just left me breathless! Impressive!

And, although I considered not to include any comic-based film on my At the Movies series, I thought this one deserved a chance. So here's my latest artwork, based on one of the most cynical scenes of the Joker, applauding in jail at Gordon's promotion.

This is also a modest homage to one of Hollywood's finest actors in one of the most memorable performances of the decade.

In case you want a printed poster of this illustration, just let me know it and I'll even give you a desktop wallpaper for free!

In the meantime, make your comments and tell me your thoughts on this illustration.

I fully agree with the comments made in this blog, not only does Ledger disappear completley impersonating the Joker but he also shows the true nature of a maniacal, sadistic terrorist who won´t stop for nobody or anything; but not only we´ll he not stop, he'll get a kick out of it. Let´s not forget that this movie shows a very humane villain with an extremly truoubled and sad past that paves the way for quote "agent of chaos". This movie made true believer out of me again, that there is still a pinch of quality in the movie business and not the usual 2x1 crap that shows in theaters now a days.
