Bonus: Wonder Woman is featured alongside a bevvy of iconic DC ladies.
I love WW's pose and expression so much, I kind of wish there was a standalone of just her.
|But where's Zatanna?|
|Ah, there she is.|
Such was the case at ECCC 2013. Weaving in and out of rows like a lunatic, with an ever-shrinking amount of cash in my hand, I made it to Andrea Tamme's booth just in time. I bought the poster, but immediately gave it to a good friend, who also happens to be a big DC fan.
This year, however, I got the time to actually speak to Andrea, a Calgary-based artist, and check out more of what she brought to the convention. She does a lot of conventions - more than ten last year - both in the USA and Canada, alongside fellow Calgary artist Drake Tsui. (more on him here.)
I love when I come across an artist who can tackle very different styles. Even moreso, when I meet someone who can do them all with the same degree of skill. And based on Andrea's portfolio, I'm not entirely sure what style she isn't good at. The doe-eyed, flirty superhero women are fun, and I am always a fan.
But then, I look at pieces like her classical style "Mr. and Mrs. Lemongrab," which is beautifully surreal, and I am even more impressed. Rosa and I grabbed a post card version of the painting - and of course, another "DC Ladies" poster- and a handful of other pieces. I'm hopeful that she will be back to Emerald City's con, or something closer to me. I look forward to seeing a lot more of her work.
Here's her website, which links to all things Andrea Tamme. http://www.andreatamme.com/
