William Olmo - Wonder Woman
2011.07.16 Barnabas Health Superheroes for Hospice Comic Book Show, Livingston, NJ
I presented Mr. Olmo with several options, and we came upon the idea of Wonder Woman posing like Marilyn Monroe...His rendition of Wonder Woman posing like Marilyn, complete with big earrings and Marilyn styled hair is perfect! William Olmo is an independent artist, he work appearing on American Screaming Eagle and Omega Sector...
Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston and Harry G. Peter, 1941, is a Princess of the Amazons, as a distinctly female role model bringing the ideals of love, peace and sexual equality to a world torn by the hatred of men..
Marilyn Monroe is listed in Wikipedia as an actress, model and singer (?). Her dumb blonde persona and her beauty have made her an icon in the film world. 1999 Monroe was ranked as the 6th greatest female star of all-time by the American Film Institute.
Both women are held in high regard and are easily two of the most recognized female role models in pop culture...
William Olmo is a friend of the Barnabas Health Hospice comic book shows, appearing at several of the events, often with William Torres (more from the both of them in the coming weeks)...
