From The Vault: Katharine Hepburn - 2004

This was a "tribute" piece to the legendary Katharine Hepburn, who had died earlier that year.

Working at a video store for a few years after art school, I gained a real appreciation for many of the stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood, and I remember working my way through our Katharine Hepburn section. My favorite films of hers were the ones she did with Spencer Tracy, but of course she did many, many classic films all on her own.

Looking back over this piece, I'm sort of stunned that I didn't keep it in my permanent rotation, since I think it came out really well--its undeniably Katharine Hepburn, but it has a slightly-cartoony fluidness that really appeals to me.

I guess I didn't realize what I had at the time...
