I’m back behind the drawing pencil again. It had been way too long.
I had always wanted to do a portrait of Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman. Batman Returns has always been my favorite of all Batman movies (still is). I just felt that Tim Burton brought the Gotham I always invisioned to life if that film. I still even use my Catwoman cup from McDonald’s that I have had since I was a kid. It has been my cup I use when I paint for rinsing my brushes. I just can’t seem to part with it no matter how much paint gets in it ha ha. Am I a huge Batman fanatic … no but I have a lot of love for this film and Michelle’s portrayal of the character. I find her to be the most convincing and sexiest version of Catwoman. Everyone that has tried to play her since just hasn’t fit the bill to me. She was so convincing and fit the role so well that no one seems to compare.
That is until the TV show Gotham. Camren Bicondova as a young Selina is like watching a younger version of Michelle on my TV screen each week. So impressed on the casting of this beautiful and talented young actress. They really couldn not have found any one better for this role. When I see her on Gotham I picture her older self as Michelle’s version of the character in Batman Returns. Which is what inspired this new piece,
I call this one 9 Lives…..
