As a fan of animation, I was a fan of the Batman: The Animated Series. The show ran on the Fox Network from 1992-1995.  I became a bigger fan when Harley Quinn was introduced in 1993. The fact that Arlen Sorkin first voiced the character only added my guilty pleasure of watching Saturday Morning cartoons...

When we were discussing a potential sketch, when he decided on the Frog cover from the Reptiles and Amphibians issue of 2003. I am not sure how to classify the style of art, not that I like to classify styles. I really like the look but I would not know how to describe to to someone who has not seen it.
