Laughing Fish

March 21, 2011

I’m a huge fan of Batman The Animated Series.  Dark, dramatic, and deco, the show undoubtedly raised the bat-bar for television animation.  One of my favorite episodes is The Laughing Fish,  a darkly screwball story penned by Paul Dini, which features a slew of smiling sea-life that have succumbed to the Joker’s toxic laughing gas.   Biological feasibility aside, the result is wonderfully creepy.

Given my fondness for the episode, I thought it would be fun to re-create one of the Joker’s laughing fish as a wall-mounted trophy, sculpted in the animated style.  Here are some pictures of the process….

      Thanks Ben! I made 2– One is at Justin’s place, and the other is sitting on my desk, haha. I did make a mold though, and am considering doing a run of a few more…

    Beautiful, and a fitting tribute to a great episode of a great show (Mark Hamill’s Joker is my favorite from any Batman version, in any medium, but I digress…). If you end up casting a few more of those, I’d pay cash money for one. It’ll go great in the man-cave alongside my other trophies.
