Vicky Ryan Dresses the ‘Parks and Rec’ Cast as DC Superheroes [Art]

Leslie Knope truly is a hero for the ages. Relentlessly upbeat, able to function on shockingly little sleep, with a craftiness far beyond normal humans and a heart as big as Indiana, Leslie is truly one of pop culture’s great superwomen and deserves to be immortalized as such. Illustrator Vicky Ryan has taken the warm civil servants from from NBC’s Parks and Recreation and dressed them up as members of the Justice League.
Ryan is studying studio art at the University of Idaho, with an emphasis on printmaking, graphic design and photography. She’s getting plenty of use out of her illustration skills with this series of Justice League/Parks and Rec portraits, although they need a touch more April Ludgate. I’m not sure I’m sold on Leslie as Robin to Ron Swanson’s Batman, although I can’t deny Ron Swanson as a hard-drinking version of the Dark Knight.

Ryan has also come out with a series of Avengers portraits, mixing clean lines with sketchy colors for the hair (or, in Nick Fury’s case, the eyepatch). Hopefully, she’ll have prints available soon at her store.

You can follow Ryan on Tumblr, or check out her site, Vicktrola Prints.

Update: Ryan has updated her Tumblr with a new piece featuring April Ludgate as Aquaman (or Aquawoman, in this case). She’s also noted that Andy and Tom are also in the pipeline and that her online shop should be live in the coming weeks.
