breakfast, at last.

sorry for the long haitus, i'm up to my ears in work. i promise that gesture drawing posts are on the way; it just might take a while for me to get to them.



in the meantime, here's a wonder woman i painted today-yes that's right-for the third annual wonder woman day held by the wonder woman museum up in portland, oregon. it's a benefit for domestic violence shelters, and i was pleased to contribute. here, princess diana is reading the new york times op-ed page with some coffee and chocolate biscotti. yes, that is something somewhat resembling a carnation on the table. ah! breakfast, at last. now where are those invisible jet keys?

  6. Your Wonder Woman looks kinda mom-ish (in a good way, of course), like she's going to go pick the super kids up from school in the invisible jet and she just took a minute for herself with the biscotti and the paper...maybe it's because of her little poochy tummy (WW is usually drawn with abs of steal or whatever).

    Totally charming, as usual!

  13. Yaaay! This is awesome Nick. I wonder what's going to happen to the cat after he touches her lasso of truth.
    Will he have a feline confession.

  14. Hey, thanks everyone!
    This was a lot of fun to do, and I enjoyed taking Wonder Woman to... boringly domestic heights! I don't know how much the final piece went for: at least a couple hundred dollars. Overall I think the auction was a big success, and it got me drawing comic book characters for a little while, which is no small thing...

  15. Hmm, always pictured Wonder Woman as more of a scone gal.
