Vee209 has painted this brilliant ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ portrait of Tom Hardy’s dastardly, physically imposing and oddly charismatic villain, Bane. Vee209 added the following with the piece, “Madame Defarge: “Tell me how long it takes to prepare the earthquake?” Msr Defarge: “A long time, I suppose,” Madame Defarge: “But when it is ready, it takes place, and grinds to pieces everything before it. In the meantime, it is always preparing, though it is not seen or heard. That is your consolation. Keep it.” —From Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities.” Check out Vee209′s page for more excellent artwork.
