This was a most enjoyable pin-up to work on being part artist, part comic book geek & part floral designer! Poison Ivy is one of the coolest villains in the Batman franchise & one of DC's hottest babes. I've always wanted to do a piece for this character to embody her as a deadly force & deliver her intoxicating sexiness. The decision to eliminate the typical foliage costume & draw her nude with ivy garland both makes the character identifiable & gives her extra sex appeal. Incorporating plants in the backdrop made a natural setting for Poison Ivy but i didn't want to use just any plants. I felt they should be just as dangerous as this viscious villain can be. Every plant is carnivorous except the rose bush. But with the thorns, roses can be a dangerous beauty just as much as Pamela Isley.
