Ponies + Superheroes = Delight

Jodi Moisan's Wonder Woman Day Pony

For every woman who grew up loving comic books and ponies, visual artist Jodi Moisan’s superhero/My Little Pony mashups are, as V. aptly put it, “So much perfect!” Jodi is one of the many creative talents who have contributed pieces being auctioned for Wonder Woman Day, the Wonder Woman Museum’s annual project that supports anti domestic-violence programs. Delightful and highly detailed, Jodi’s ponies of Wondy, Batgirl, Modok, Mockingbird and Wolverine made my inner 6-year-old positively giddy.

Ben Caldwell’s Wonderful Wondy

 

Ben Caldwell's sketch for Wonder Woman Day V

 

We know artist Ben Caldwell draws a gorgeous, distinctive Wonder Woman, and he’s using his talent to support a good cause. Caldwell is one of the artists who has donated artwork that will be auctioned for Wonder Woman Day V, an annual event supporting anti-domestic violence programs. There’s a ton of stuff being auctioned, ranging from the seriously cool (including Caldwell’s sketch above) to the quirky to the, ah, different. In other words, something for everyone.

For those of us still drooling over Caldwell’s pitch for a series about our favorite superheroine, there’s a special treat below — another sketch from the passion project that captivated Wonder Woman fans across the blogosphere. The sword! The big eyes! The flowing locks! Sigh. So pretty.
