PJ McQuade – The Joker and Harley Quinn get Hitched!

This is a much belated wedding gift to my friends Josh and Mara Bernstein. Josh and I go way back, I helped launched his killer cult magazine ROYAL FLUSH and were in the Lower East Side’s infamous  pyscho-rockabilly post punk – haha – band The Spicy Rizzaks together (sandwich here) back in the day.  He’s now killin’ it as the creative director of Revolver Magazine. Well, my wife and I gave them a gift last year at the wedding but during the course of it I drunkenly promised Josh a portrait of them as the Joker and Harley Quinn, who also cutely sat atop their wedding cake. It took a while, started off as a portrait but kept evolving – but I finally came through and got them off an 11×17″ print.  Finito!  Congrats Josh and Mara!

& here’s a screenshot of all the files and imagery I used to make this. :)

  1. Ha this is hilarious. Nice job.

  2. That’s great! At first I thought it was an actual cover. Great present.

  3. Haha, cool, the faux cover idea came at the last minute and just pulled it all together, thanks!
