Wonder Woman


Why is it whenever I see the name "Wonder Woman", I hear the theme song from the old 70's TV show in my head? This is a recent painting I did to take with me to the Toronto Comicon that took place over the weekend. I actually painted this in just blue and black, but changed it up to a blue and red colour scheme after scanning it in. I think I was subconsciously trying to evoke a bit of the feel of those classic red and blue WPA posters of the 30's and 40's.

My thanks to everyone who stopped by at the convention. It was a nice way to start off the run of Toronto comic shows for the year (TCAF is just a month away!). Unfortunately, I could only stay for a half day on Sunday, so my apologies to anyone who was put out by my early departure.
