8 Wonder Woman Art Pieces For Inspiration

With the recent release of “Wonder Woman 1984” we wanted to showcase some of our favorite art pieces inspired by one of our favorite DC heroines, Diana Prince a.k.a. Wonder Woman. Created by famous psychologist William Moulton Marston and artist Harry G. Peter, Wonder Woman first appeared in All Star Comics #8 in 1941, Sensation Comics #1, and Wonder Woman #1 in 1942. She is an icon throughout the world and easily recognized with her red bodice with gold eagle, blue shorts covered in white stars, gold bracelets, gold tiara, and gold lasso. Below are some art pieces from artists around the world to inspire, just as Diana has inspired us for decades. If you have work or know of anyone that has work and would like to be showcased in a future article, let us know in the comments!
