‘Take my business card’

To follow my artworks inspired by the Joker, I have also created my own Joker Cosplay

I had great fun building a set for the Joker’s lair, and props for the photographs. I wanted to give the lair a  disheveled industrial theme. With the colour palette of purple and green throughout the costume, set and props.

Here is a collection of my favourite pieces of artwork I have completed, inspired by the infamous Joker

I have always loved the Joker, he is the perfect psychopath. He is motivated by the desire for chaos and destruction. Rather than money or lust.
