Feline 2


By now everyone knows about my love of television from the sixties. So every once in a while I seek out a photo from that era to draw. I found this great publicity shot of Julie Newmar, who was Catwoman on the old Batman show. When people in Los Angles would ask me if they could look through my drawing book. They always stopped on this drawing. They loved it because it is a kind of headshot, which everyone in Hollywood has, even if you are not an actor. Today every photo is so expertly done and heavily retouched. The nice thing about this photo was that it was not retouched at all. It was her actual boobs. It was a beautiful woman, flaws and all. Now that's what I'm talking about.

Before Batman, she was in a show called, "My Living Doll." I was a kid but I had a crush on her even then. Great drawing, the grey tones add to the 50's mood.

That's what I was thinking.

I sse it's all men leaving comments. Catwoman was very important to us as kids.

I'm a girl and I *adored* Julie Newmar as Catwoman. She had it all...tough, sexy, evil, great catsuit. She was the one villian who could fluster Batman. She was my idol.
