Who says pin-up posters are outdated? Definitely not artist Maria Danalakis! This gal certainly knows what she was doing when she creates these retro superhero pin-up posters. Based out of Brooklyn, New York, Danalakis works with oil paint, paper collage, and loves Adobe Illustrator. She is a graphic artist and illustrator by profession. No wonder her posters make you say “Want!”
Thanks to Design Taxi, I discovered these really fun retro superhero pin-up posters. Take a look yourself.
Retro Harley Quinn
Technically a super villain, this retro Harley Quinn does not look so evil to me. She does look really sexy, though, doesn’t she? I think it’s the glasses.
Retro Poison Ivy
Another super villain, Poison Ivy is considered to be an eco-terrorist. This retro rendition does not really match her reputation, does it? Then again, the best of villains can be disguised in a bundle of cuteness. I think I prefer the original – darker – version of Poison Ivy.
Retro Cat Woman
I don’t know, but there is something about Cat Woman that makes her look so alluring no matter what. Even this cute version does not totally get rid of that certain something – whatever it is!
With a doctorate in Library Science, Batgirl (the Barbara Gordon Batgirl) can easily be the most attractive of the female superheroes. That is, if you like that kind of thing. In this this retro pin-up poster, Batgirl does not seem to fit the “normal” idea of a librarian, but heck, is she hot! Just forget the glittering purple skirt.
Retro Wonder Woman
In spite of not being a comic reader, I just have this thing for Wonder Woman. Isn’t that just perfect?
You can get these prints – and more – from Danalakis’s Etsy shop for only $10. I think that the artist is also open to having other characters drawn if you ask her nicely.
