I just saw over at Grantbridge Street & other misadventures a post with some cool Batgirl sketches, and it reminded me to pull out an original sketch that I bought from Gil Kane back in the early 80s. He had a sheaf of drawings that were preliminaries for covers and such, and I bought a batch, including some I'll eventually post with the covers they were associated with.
I have yet to find a cover that this was a prelim for. Still, it's my favorite rendition of Batgirl ever.

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
