I did this after seeing a bunch of depictions of the batman/robin relationship as pedophile and minor, which I thought was uncreative and offensive. To me, the relationship has always been a paternal one, and I think this shows one of those moments I've had with my own son, where I am trying to teach him something I feel is important, using a serious tone to emphasize the point, then he goes and pulls some random stunt that makes me smile in spite of myself.
That is so true. I really think it's sad when people down-play that paternal relationship they have. It IS important.
Thanks Kav, I appreciate it!
Thank you for that lovely description along with this amazing piece of art. The other day I was having a discussion about Batman and Robin with a relative of mine, in which I couldn't get through one sentence without having that relative interrupt me with a gay or pedophile joke. It frustrates me, that some people cannot understand the actual relationship between these two.
Besides that...this piece is absolutely adorable and I love it :3
