Recently I was at dinner with my friend Tony Gilroy. He asked me if I'd seen the Batmobile. I didn't know what he was talking about. Tony couldn't believe I didn't know it was on display at The New York Historical Society. The very next day, I ran to the place. As I entered the lobby, there it was. Holy smokes, Batman. I asked if it was OK for me to draw it. They said, "only with pencil." Oh no, here we go again. So I sat and drew this with colored pencils. I knew I could do a much better version if I was allowed to use my pens and watercolors. So I went to the front desk and asked to see someone in charge. They called for head of security. When he arrived, I showed him my sketchbook and asked for permission to use ink and paint. He leafed through it and I thought his head would explode. "You can do whatever the hell you want in this museum," is what he told me. Then I set about working with my pens and paints. Pretty soon a couple of security guards came over to watch me. They thumbed through a few of my sketchbooks and they were hooked. Pretty soon a few more guards came from other floors. Someone must have tipped them off. By the end, I had the people at the front desk, the coat check girl and officials looking at my Batmobile drawing. I will post that one I did in pen and watercolor next week.

For my 12th birthday I got my parents to take me to an auto show where the Batmobile was displayed. Best birthday gift ever.

I'm jealous Ed. Seeing it at 12 would have been off the charts.

I saw it the other day, on my way to the AMNH. Took a bunch of pictures. Almost didn't make to other museum.
