Catwoman - Julie Newmar Style!

I realized that after doing a lot of these Illustrator pieces that I really haven't done any comic book characters in a while. So I decided to do one and, after a bit of consideration, I thought I'd do Catwoman. I originally sketched Catwoman in her current costume jumping from one rooftop to another. But I started thinking about how much I dug Julie Newmar in the old 60's Batman series. So, I went retro (like I'm prone to do) and did the piece above. I even snuck Batman and Robin into the picture. I hope you dig it!

Damn, you're good! I've got to get on this "Illustrator" schtick. Oh, I checked out your studio pictures. The Executioner and Darwyne Cooke?! That's awesome.

Very nice. I've been a fan or your artwork since i came across 'Shades of Blue'
and it looks like your skill is growing in leaps and bounds.

james - I appreciate it!

It's too bad Gold Eagle cut back on their books. I haven't read an Executioner since about #40, but my absolute favorite title was the S.O.B.s. That series rocked. Oh, and keep up the dynamite work.

Excellent!

Very cool, you really captured a lot of Batman in his one drawing.
