Sketch o’the Week- Anne Hathaway

August 15th, 2012 | Posted in Sketch O'The Week

This week’s subject is The Dark Knight Rises star Anne Hathaway. I have to admit I was not very enthusiastic over her casting as Selena Kyle aka Catwoman in the latest Batman movie, but I also questioned director Christopher Nolan‘s choice of Heath Ledger as the Joker in The Dark Knight at first, and we all know how that turned out. I trusted Nolan, and he didn’t disappoint. Hathaway was great in the role, and to have a overtly hot, vampy actress play the part would have been a mistake. I thought she was just the right amount of tough, complex, smart and sexy for the role.

    On a totally unrelated note that is in no way whatsoever remotely connected to the above sketch, when does MAD #518 come out?

    • Tom says:

      I don’t know what you are talking about, but the official news stand date for #518 is October 23rd.

  2. Back on track…. Awesome sketch Tom!

  3. Jim Lavery says:

    You captured her perfectly Tom. Any time I see her I say she’d make the perfect cartoon. Her eyes and smile are so big she looks like a cartoon already, while still being extremely attractive. Oh no, I’m sounding like a weirdo, aren’t I? Cool.

    i love your work and cannot get to much its awesome

  5. thomasJames Scott says:

    so if you are cartooning,why emulate Vogue or Cosmopolitan and go HerbBlock
    instead of distorting such a fine pulchritudinous piece of feminine architecture?

    • Tom says:

      I fail to see how this drawing is “emulating Vogue or Cosmopolitan”. If you are asking me why I didn’t do a more cartoonish or exaggerated caricature of her, then the answer is because I didn’t. It’s a sketch, and I draw those in whatever manner the subject or drawing takes me. However, thanks for the unsolicited elucidation of my Hathaway delineation.


Just added dates for Atlanta and London, spots still available in Dallas and Toronto!
