If you've been to Disneyland's Haunted Mansion, you've probably seen the famous “stretching portraits,” a series of paintings which expand to reveal hidden images. That display inspired artist Abraham Lopez to create similar portraits of iconic Batman characters – including The Joker, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and of course Batman's own team – for his work “Haunted Arkham Asylum.”

Recently Laughing Squid showcased Lopez's four panels alongside the Disney Originals (shown above, designed by Marc Davis and painted by Clem Hill) for comparison, and the scenarios are a dead-on homage: Harley balanced over Killer Croc, The Joker holding Scarface, Ivy perched on Ra’s Al Ghul's tombstone, and the Batman family sinking into a pool of Clayface.
 
More of Lopez's excellent work can be found at his DeviantArt and Tumblr pages.
