The Window Is Open, I Feel Crummy & Cheetah Gets Revenge!
Hi All--- Here's step 1 of a new Wonder Woman Bondage commission. I've been modeling these after classic old school, pulpy bondage situations. I found my idea for the Wonder Woman/ Zatanna commission in Sensation Comics #26 in my copy of Les Daniels' Wonder Woman The Complete History. There's a great golden age Wonder Woman tied to the railroad tracks panel that really caught my eye, so I riffed on it. This piece is a combination of two of my favorite pop culture women---Wonder Woman of course, and Bettie Page. My work is heavily influenced by Dave Stevens' The Rocketeer, and because of that, I discovered and fell in love with Bettie Page at an early age---My other teen-age crush was Linda Carter as Wonder Woman...So really this piece makes perfect sense:) In an effort at a nice homage, I pulled the Wonder Woman pose from a classic Irving Claw photo, and Cheetah's hairbrush wielding spanking was inspired by another photo of Ms Page. I did my best to make it both alluring and epic at the same time. In other news----I'm feeling crummy after spending the last four days looking after my daughter, who had a pretty harsh bit of the flu. I fear I may have picked it up.
