Collectible Time #42: Nate "the Animal" Gonzalez Meredith/Penguin Sketch

My buddy, Nate "the Animal" Gonzalez is at it again (see Collectible Time #39: Sept '15), with another Batman '66 tribute...and this time, it's Burgess Meredith as the Penguin!!!

Indeed, this homage is spot-on, but in addition to capturing Meredith's facial design, it lends a more sinister, chilling quality to the character (a tinge of Robin Lord Taylor foreshadowing, perhaps?); nonetheless, it's certainly one to gaze upon and admire.

According to Nate, this may act as a blueprint for a painting he'll do, but it'll be a copy of the sketch he'll end up using, since I now own (along with two 11" x 17" prints) the 8" x 10" original!!!
