Portraits of a Lady

I  did more than my average amount of writing in last week’s post. This week, I’ve decided to be lazy and rely on eye candy. I will simply say that I don’t think anyone has portrayed Wonder Woman with as much dignity and respect as Alex Ross. Consider some of the evidence:

You may have some other favorite artist(s) and therefore beg to differ, but I think these images are the most eloquent statement of my case. I find the artistic representations of Wonder Woman by Alex Ross to be the most commendable from a standpoint of feminism and stimulating our imaginations for expanding the roles of women in society.
