In high school, I had a love affair with Turner Classic Movies. I was introduced to a world of clean narratives and original storytelling, from a time when Hollywood spiced up its productions more often with creativity and class, rather than "adult content."
One such actress that embodied this nostalgic and perhaps rose-tinted view of the golden age of Hollywood, was Audrey Hepburn. More well known by younger millennials as the go-to, dorm-room poster decorative, Hepburn's acclaim as a multifaceted thespian and humanitarian has been pushed to the wayside in recent years.
Even still, she has continued to be an icon of feminine class, well into the 21st century. As an entertainer, she had this sanguine energy about her, which inspired me to sketch this piece as an ode to one of my favorite classic actresses.
