    The reason I painted the Starry Knight is a completely different reason than most of my other Batman pieces. The truth is, I was inspired and got the idea on the opening night of the movie 'The Dark Knight'. That scene that I've painted in the movie actually reminded me of the Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh the second I saw it. I had an epiphany during that scene when I realized that from what I know about Van Gogh, and Heath Ledger's 'Joker', they were the exact same person... Both completely out of their minds, and yet manage to make sense of the world; possibly better than most of us. At that moment, it also crossed my mind that Van Gogh painted the Starry Night from his cell window in an Asylum. I imaged Van Gogh holding his head close to the window and feeling the wind hit face just as the Joker was doing in my painting. The truth is, you see the Joker, but I was drawing Van Gogh.
