First I'd like to thank a cool EB member for hooking me up with this Robert Bruno "Jokers" original. I plan on having it framed by FD. I know that Doug will have a lot of good ideas but I also wanted to see if anyone on here had any suggestions.

It measures 8" x 12" so not sure how much space to work with because don't want frame to dwarf it. And it is pencil but I'm not afraid of colors / art on the matting or frame. The print is so cool that I think Doug's work would just make the whole thing crazy cool.

I'm thinking black frame. I don't want any bats or mention of Batman because this is all Joker here. Thinking of the colors purple, green, and orange for matting. Maybe split the color down the difference. Maybe he can use / draw joker cards on the matting with the ones from "Batman" on the left and the ones from "Dark Knight" on the left. Maybe the cards can be colored purple, green, or orange.

I definetely want at least one quote from each film on it somewhere, Batman quote on left and Dark Knight quote on right. Was thinking "Haven't you ever heard of the healing power of laughter?" and "Why so serious?". There are so many quotes I love from Dark Knight thugh (Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stranger, Madness is like gravity all it takes is a little push, I'm not a monster I'm just ahead of the curve, Introduce a little anarchy, etc). I don't want to litter it with quotes though.

Unless maybe on top the matting to the right of print can be "HAH" and the right "AHA" or "The" above print and "Joker" below. The letters of each word can maybe be made out of the words of a quote from each?

Finally, the scene in Batman where The Joker is at the art museum (I think this is where many artists today were influenced, sic) I am definetely thinking of an image somewhere of Joker's handprints and his cursive writing "Joker was here!" that was in purple (that he painted on a piece of art in museum).

A lot of ideas, too many. Would love to hear other ideas or to help me widdle mine down! And I didn't even mention anything on the frame itself just mainly the matting.
Btw, the regular edition print is here:

Thanks for any and all suggestions (to the FD fans and customers, others can save time if suggest to get a reg frame not gonna happen).

Thanks again!


I'm your huckleberry. That's just my game.

My advice is to give it to him, tell him to do something cool with it and ask when you can pick it up. I did it with bomber on page one of this thread and am happy I did so.

New to site,

Recently had Doug do a couple of prints and now seem to have a cycle going with him. Great and wonderful guy, here's a recent piece I had done by him.

Hi all, I need some advise and/or assistance. I can't get a hold of Doug. At all. We talked and agreed to do a framing project. I sent him a poster and matte from my wedding, got 2 or 3 emails over the next month about design and then nothing. As of now, I haven't heard from him in 3 months (last email from him was April 10). So, I'm not sure how to move forward at this point. Does anyone have his contact information? It looks like he's actively posting on various social medias (Facebook, Instagram) so I don't know what in the hell is going on. Everyone here raves about him and how easy it was to work with hum, so this feels uncharacteristic. At this point, I just want to know how to move forward, since he still has my art!

Any help would be greaaaaaat. THANKS EB

He’s very active and quick to respond. He just missed one of your emails or there’s some error happening
I talked to him yesterday and again very quickly today.
