Break-In at Tiffany's

This is the centerfold to my new 2009 sketchbook, available from Stuart Ng Books.

A loving tribute, after dozens of CATWOMAN covers, to the facial inspiration for my version of Selina, the fabulous Audrey Hepburn. The original AH!

Also, a little Beatles in-joke; my favorite band.

The toughest part of this piece was finding out what store is across from the Manhattan Tiffany & Co. today; I thought it would be cool to not draw the facing shop from 1961, when the film was made, but that actuall shop that stands there today. Thanks to Google Maps' street view feature, I found out it's a shop balled Bulgari.

Penicl, Pitt pen, COPIC cool grey marker, and white calligraphy ink on Strathmore 80 lb. drawing paper.

I always thought your Catwoman looked a little like Audrey Hepburn facially. Regardless, this is just awesome! I cracked up when I saw this.

Adam, You never cease to amaze me with your talent. I just love your Audrey Hepburn inspired version of Catwoman. I would have loved to have seen Audrey play her in the 1960's Batman TV show.

I love using Google Maps to figure out that kind of stuff. References are just the best. Great little tie-ins here.
