My earliest Muse, the Masters of the Universe and the Great Rebellion  

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!

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!
