RANDOM WORK OF WOW: Paul Guinan's Wonder Woman

Sometimes you stumble across an artist who has only a couple of comic based pieces, other times there can be just one work so brilliant, you'd risk being stoned to death by fellow art lovers for putting something else beside it. These are Random Works of Wow and illustrating the point this week is Paul Guinan and Wonder Woman.

I love my mythological Wonder Woman, but nothing puts the smile on my dial like seeing Diana smash up some Nazi's. The fact that Paul clearly captures TV 'Wonder Woman' Lynda Carter in his art, well that's just the tiara on the amazon.

While there is another Wonder Woman print on Guinan's Etsy store at the moment, hopefully it won't be long before this is reoffered once more.

Like Christopher Reeves and Hugh Jackman to an extent, it's a testament to the work they did that when you see art that bares their likeness you don't think that's a perfect picture of the character they played, but that's a perfect picture of that character period. 

 What do you think?

  3. I love this, really love it.
    I first got it in a mag called AlterEgo's that devoted one entire issue to the Lynda Carter tv show, with an extended interview with the lady herself and much background info. But the highlight was the full-colour middle section that featured this very picture plus several others, drawn by Adam Hughes and Paul Giunan. Gorgeous looking pictures, all of the tv show and the various characters featured.
    I love my Wonder Woman!

  4. Nice! Art, like this with the photo-realistic tone is something I enjoy looking at. Love this rendition of Lynda Carter, who still looks hot at her age. Milf/Gilf territory!

  5. Thanks for filling in the backstory Karl - good to know this piece has already had a wide audience. Deff check out his site Mr, there's a few more Wondy Works, done in detail just as stunning as this one.

    Yeah Dale I saw her on Super Troopers the other night and was surprised how Wonder Woman she still looked! Maybe play an immortal amazon and that's what you become!
