Christmas is just around the corner, and because it’s such a commercial holiday, retailers are throwing up their best and most beautiful. (I’m totally aware that Thanksgiving comes before Christmas in the US, but for the rest of the world, Christmas is the next holiday. Also, you can’t talk about gifts and Thanksgiving, unless you’re choosing to celebrate it weirdly. For those outside of the US, we do not exchange gifts at Thanksgiving). Sideshow Collectibles seems to be thinking along the lines of best and beautiful because, available for pre-order now, is a fine art print featuring Harley Quinn posing with her hyenas.
It’s time to get classy, Batfans! With this new Harley Quinn fine art print, you can be the pretentious art snob you always wanted to be in front of your friends. In all seriousness though, true to its name, it’s a gorgeous print with Harls and her trusty companions, Bud and Lou. I could easily go on all I want about how beautiful the print is, but you won’t really grasp it until you see it.
Pinup artist Olivia De Berardinis has lovingly brought to life a realistic take on Harley, that looks like she could easily just jump off the page and cartwheel away. There’s just so much to take in from this painting that you can’t gather all the details from the first few glances. Aside from giving some love to Bud and Lou, two hyenas who deserve every ounce, my favorite thing is the contrast between Harley and the background. There’s a clear distinction in style. As I said, Harley herself looks very realistic, while the background looks blurry and even somewhat psychedelic. It’s such a cool style, and you can’t get much better than Harley Quinn posing with hyenas.
