How about a little kitteh-lady in your life today? Take a gander at Catwoman’s mercurial adorableness in “The Many Faces of Selina Kyle,” cropped (click through to full picture).
Adam Hughes, who is totally cool and cute and hilarious and just a warm, generous human being all around besides being a talented artist, did the cover art for Catwoman (vol.2) issues 43-82. He’s brilliant and, from accounts of people’s encounters with him out and about, a very friendly and upbeat guy, which is a cool thing to find in the comics world.
Everyone is eager to talk about their favorite stuff, but sometimes really well-known artists can be kind of … prickly. And of course comic book geeks, like geeks of any stripe, can be guilty of the exact sort of elitism that made them feel rejected by the “cool kids” and drove them to their esoteric pursuit to begin with. But it seems not so with “AH!” as he is billed in his signature.
So what makes a kitteh-lady drawing? More than sugar and spice and everything nice. From Adam Hughes’s description on his deviantart account:
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:
Super-cute. He’s so great.
