2008 national NOW conference

Last week, I was contacted by the National Organization for Women (NOW) regarding this Wonder Woman illustration I did for fun. They were interested in creating a female superhero for their 2008 National NOW Conference and liked my work, so I was asked to come up with something. Everything they were looking for already existed in my illustration except, of course, we didn't want to run into costume rights issues. A new costume design was in order, and that meant a meeting of the minds with Kevenn T. Smith to come up with one that helps communicate NOW's message.

Enter NOW Woman to present this year's conference theme: No Capes, No Masks, No Boundaries: Super-Women Unite!

She'll be appearing on the Conference's program book, flyers, and internet promotions.

I am extremely proud to have worked with an organization of NOW's caliber. It's my honor to be associated with such a remarkable group of women; superheroes in their own right.

Congratulations to this year's honorees at the Conference and The Intrepid Awards Gala.
