MUA John Caglione created the make-up look for Heath's character The Joker in film The Dark Knight. He took a huge influence from Francis Bacon in his designs. He used a technique which he refers to as 'dance', "Heath would lead by contouring his face, scrunching his eyes, and raising his forehead. I would follow, brushing the colours over his expressions." Seeing the outcome that can be achieved with this technique has given me inspiration to explore it further in my designs.

This this the Bacon image that Caglione says he took most inspiration from
