As most hardcore comic book fans, Batman and the characters within the universe hold a special place in my heart. I have been painting these characters on my earrings and cuffs for years. I thought it high time to feature them all here on my blog to remind myself and my fans of what I have to offer!
Up first we have Babs! (Possibly my favorite) The name of each piece will take you to the item to purchase. Clockwise from top left: Kawai style, Batgirl cuff, batgirl/oracle earrings, and classic Babs earrings

These next earrings were just featured in a viral social media video that I caught wind of this week. It features a gorgeous Latina woman named Nicole who is obsessed with Wonder Woman. Words cannot express my excitement. Here is the link for the video and the link to the earrings.
A little Romance with this painted Batman and Wonder Woman cuff!
Is it Wrong that I had such a huge crush on the Psychotic Joker-like Jerome on Gotham? I had to paint him. Had to. PURCHASE HERE.
Finally, and most importantly: Gay for Days. When I was little I knew I was gay and I dove into the world of comics quite often when life wasn’t so kind to me. Even in that world I felt a little hurt because I never saw any gay heroes, any example that let me know that I wasn’t alone. Clockwise from top left: Batman and Robin, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn, Catwoman and Poison Ivy, and Batman and Superman!
The moment I discovered He-Man and the Masters of the Universe I was hooked. The world and characters were like nothing I had ever seen and it had my synapses firing at full speed. She-Ra came along soon after and I could really identify with this woman who was way more bad ass than Barbie. She seemed more like the fighting spirit I could see inside my own momma and grandmother. The world of He-Man and She-Ra led me to comic books and the heroes of Marvel and DC and thus, my art style was born.
My latest painting was inspired by He-Man’s most trusted companion Cringer and the internet sensation lolcats. I CAN HAS A POWER Is available now.
I sketched these characters day and night for many years, I begged for the toys, I rushed home after school to watch the cartoons and now they are still a huge part of my world.
My “No Fat Chicks” Skeletor is new, updated and now listed! A chubby Sorceress makes an appearance on his graphic tee.
Fisto, She-Ra, King Grayskull and King Randor dressed in their finest Viking garb and joined me on a recent trip to Latourell Falls. (fisto was and still is my favorite figure in the original and new toy line)
Just a few years ago Mattel and the Four Horsemen began releasing a re-vamped line of He-Man and She-Ra figures and they are stunning. I have quite a few of them and they often come with me on my hikes for photoshoots. Most of these make it to the Zachary Pryor Instagram page.
These simple, striking beauties remind me of something She-Ra would wear, so I named them ADORA VS DESPARA Despara was the name Hordak have She-Ra when she was his pawn.
I don’t quite play with the action figures, but I do travel and hike with them and just that act reminds me of the cherished memories I created with the original line of figures on the banks of the Aroostook river in Northern Maine.
A statement necklace worthy of the ladies in the Great Rebellion! The eagle bib with Egytian influences is ready for you!
The He-Man and Skeletor graphic Tee diptych is also in my Etsy shop.
Double sided earring goodness!
So there you have it – a peek into one of my oldest, longest running creative influences and some of the new pieces in my world inspired by it. I would be very interested in hearing from you if you have any special memories that stem from the worlds of Etheria and Eternia! Reach out and let me know!
