This is a hand painted limited edition cel. Originally drawn and rendered in-house by DC Comics, "Gotham's Dynamic Duo" featuring Batman & Robin, is created in the style used for the first season Warner Bros. "Batman: The Animated Series". This series inspired an entirely new style of animation called “Dark Deco,” whereby the backgrounds were painted on black paper, giving Gotham an entirely new persona and darkness which melded with Batman’s character. This also was the first Batman series to concentrate heavily on the personalities of the character, making it as much a character-based theme as it was based in action. Each of “Gotham’s Dynamic Duo” has been hand-numbered and signed by Bruce Timm, Alan Burnett, Paul Dini and the late Kevin Conroy. Kevin's signature is cropped in this image but appears in full at the very top center of the cel. This is number 18/100.

Hand-painted limited editions recreate classic moments from great cartoons, using the same materials and techniques as were used in making the originals. Some limited editions are exact reproductions of frames from the films they represent, while others, such as Chuck Jones’ limited editions, are based on contemporary interpretations of great characters and scenes.
In either case, the animator’s drawing is transferred onto acetate cels, then each is meticulously hand-painted by studio artists. Each piece is hand-numbered in small edition sizes of between 100 and 750. In some cases the finished cels are then signed by the animator.
As the great majority of original cels from the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s are no longer in existence, limited edition cels allow collectors an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy some of the greatest moments in the history of animation.
