Playboy's Joker

Featured in Playboy's 'On Pleasure' issue, Butcher Billy creates a grinning Joker for an article examining the film.

With his usual punchy style and arresting graphics, Butcher Billy was the ideal artist to work on this feature for the new Joker film. He explains, "With Joker bringing an iconic grin back to theaters, Playboy magazine considers why the diabolical hedonist continues to captivate us. I was invited by Playboy to create an exclusive artwork for an article that analyzes the origins of the character, featuring interviews with Joaquin Phoenix, Todd Phillips, Jim Lee and David Goyer."
