Break-In at Tiffany's by AdamHughes Break-In at Tiffany's by AdamHughes
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.

Hrm... Logic sucks -_-"

I appreciate that you figured out the Audrey Hepburn thing by looking through the restr of my gallery.

So I was googling about for Catwoman inspiration for random doodles and it led me here. Your work is definitely some of my favorite of what little I know of comics artists (I'm a very, VERY casual reader), and I think it's incredibly cool that you actually manage to respond to comments on your pieces! That's very awesome and if I ever get famous I only hope I retain the patience and grace to do that.

But...am I SERIOUSLY the first person to comment on the "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window" lyrics here? Because the Beatles song just the cherry on top of this sundae of wonderfulness, and I hate to think that people are missing it.

Thank you for noticing, and saying so. I try my best to be gracious & courteous as often as I can, time willing. Your comment makes it worth some of the nasty people I have to deal with from time-to-time.
