    Purrrr-Fect Eartha by Kevenn T. Smith

    This piece has been living in my head for a while now, demanding to be made.  Eartha Kitt, as a performer, thrills me.  I think our world is a suckier place since she passed away in 2008.  She is my second favorite live-action Catwoman.  (I have to cop to Michelle Pfeifer's psychologically driven performance in Batman Returns as my favorite.)  However, I think Eartha's Catwoman is the most fun and slinky Catwoman of all.  When Julie Newmar (whom I also loved) bowed out of the 60's Batman series in its third season, casting Eartha Kitt was a no-brainer.  Look at her album covers from the fifties and sixties - she already WAS Catwoman.  Eartha Kitt was a global citizen years before the rest of us started to get onboard.  She spoke four languages and sang in seven. 

    She was the kind of celebrity that is becoming extinct - one with a truly individual voice, the likes of Bea Arthur, Phyllis Diller, Grace Jones, and Carol Channing.  Nowadays, vocal sounds are so homogenized.  There's rarely any character and distinction in a lot of the voices I hear in mainstream singers and celebrities.  I feel like everyone is too busy trying to be "hot" to be distinctive.  You can't tell me Eartha Kitt's voice wasn't hot.

    This piece is after Eartha's 1957 cover of Norsk Dameblad magazine.  I chose red and leopard print for the background colors because Catwoman's lair in the Batman series had red drapery and a leopard print upholstered chair.  This illustration is available as 8 by 10 inch prints on regular photo paper $20 + $8 shipping; or on metallic photo paper (which I highly recommend, because the quality is vastly superior!)for $25 + $8 shipping.

    Dark Knight Daughter: The Huntress by Kevenn T. Smith

    In the late 70's and early 80's, the character of The Huntress that appeared in DC Comics was Helena Wayne, the daughter of Batman and Catwoman on the alternate Earth known as Earth-2.  She was a member of the Justice Society and also had her own series of back-up stories in the Wonder Woman comic book.  DC Comics has just announced that the Earth-2 Huntress character will be appearing in a title called "World's Finest," alongside her best friend, Power Girl, also an Earth-2 character.

    I thought I'd take the opportunity to dust off this old piece and give it a touch-up.  I was never quiet 100% happy with the way it looked before.  It was one of the first times I had tried to color digitally - with the background -  while integrating it with hand colored aspects - The Huntress herself.  I didn't feel like the two "meshed" together as well as I'd like.  Now, after going back, I'm a lot happier with the final outcome.

    This illustration is available as 8 by 12 inch prints on regular photo paper $20 + $8 shipping; or on metallic photo paper (which I highly recommend, because the quality is vastly superior!)for $25 + $8 shipping.

    Earth-2 Huntress: Helena Wayne

    This is a commission that I did for my friend and writer, J.H. Moffat who runs the online urban fiction magazine, Drops of Crimson.  This piece is of the Earth-2 Huntress, Helena Wayne.  Earth-2 was a parallel earth where Batman and Catwoman had their career in the 1940's and ended up marrying and having a daughter, Helena.  Catwoman was eventually killed, and Batman died, and Helena carried on their legacy as the Huntress.

    The newer version of this illustration is available as prints. Please use the "Contact Me" form at the top-left of this page to request one and inquire further about pricing and sizes.

    DC Comics Villainesses 2007

    After completing the DC Comics Heroines 2007 piece, my goal was to create a companion piece for it that would contrast it with a showcase of DC Comics' various villainesses.



    Once again, my goal was to depict iconic representations of the characters that would give an idea of who these characters were, just from looking at them, as well as rendering them in the styles of my favorite artists who have depicted them.  Some of those artists include Terry Dodson, Jim Balent, Nicola Scott, Matthew Clark, Lee Moder, Dustin Nguyen, George Perez, Joe Bennet, J.G. Jones, Dale Eaglesham, Jesus Saiz, Patrick Olliffe, H.G. Peter, Mark Buckingham, Ed Benes, Adam Kubert, Drew Johnson, Ethan Van Sciver, Joe Benitez, Phil Jimenez, Gary Frank, Tom Raney, Graham Nolan, John Byrne, and Don Kramer. Some of the characters have only appeared in animated DC projects, but I did not feel that the animated style would work well with the others styles present in this piece, so I rendered them in my own style instead.

    What follows is a numbered version of the piece, and below that is the key to the names of the numbered characters, as well as the superhero/heroine or group they are the most common adversary to or affiliated with:


    01. Silver Banshee (Superman/Supergirl);  02. Ursa (Superman);
