Ever since he took up drawing Catwoman covers for DC Comics, I can’t think about Selina Kyle without thinking about Adam Hughes.Â One of my favorite artists of all time, Hughes finds Ms. Kyle one of his favorites too.
I miss drawing Selina. It sure was fun with her; lots of different moods. She’s the quintessential femme fatale.
And YES, I’m aware the she resembles Audrey Hepburn, LOL.
My personal inspiration for Selina Kyle is Ms. Hepburn, circa 1954-57. My favorite face ever.
My personal inspirational cocktail for Catwoman is:
70% young Audrey Hepburn
20% Liz Taylor from CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF
10% Trinity from the first MATRIX film
Take the jump for a look at Catwoman 73, where Hughes changes up his regular art supplies for something completely different.
The cover to CATWOMAN 73, done on animation paper with Pitt pens. I was experimenting with faster materials, as I was always behind. I kinda liked how Selina turned out on this one. The neon was fun to do in Photoshop, as well.
With my love for Hughes’ work, I can’t help but wonder how many more times his work will appear in this new feature.
