Comic book fans should be aware of Joe Quesada, an executive over at Marvel Entertainment. In case you somehow did not know, Quesada is an incredibly accomplished artist as well. While closely associated with the Marvel brand now, he began work in the industry as an artist for DC Comics. He eventually left his mark at DC by co-creating Azrael with Denny O’Neill. A big hotshot in Marvel right now, he still hasn’t lost his touch with Batfamily characters. On Instagram, Quesada shows he still has the chops by posting an illustration of Catwoman.
Quesada is currently involved in a YouTube livestream show called The Original Drink and Draw Social Club. The show invites artists to drink and talk shop, all while drawing a pre-determined character. Last Friday, Catwoman was the character of the week and Batfans are reaping all the rewards.
Take a look at the piece below:

That’s pretty stunning, don’t you think? The inking is pretty phenomenal and I just adore Selina’s face. I’m not sure why, but Selina’s face to me comes off as a Year 2 or Year 3 version of Catwoman, very fresh in the world of petty crime.
Also, in case you missed it, last week Quesada posted an illustration of the man himself:
Though not as good as the illustration of Catwoman, I do like it quite a bit. Perhaps it’s not the best angle for the Dark Knight, but there’s no denying that Quesada knows how to draw comic book characters.
A pretty fun and interesting YouTube show for comic book fans, check out the Drink and Draw Social Club.
