    South Korean illustrator Wooh Nayoung, who goes by the name Obsidian, likes drawing famous characters using her unique comic-like style. So, when her recent drawing of “Guardians of the Galaxy” actor Chris Pratt went viral, the Hollywood star immediately noticed.

    According to Koreaboo, Pratt praised Obsidian for her artwork that paid tribute to the Marvel film. The artist posted her work on Twitter where she drew the actor wearing a traditional hanbok. The amazing illustration also featured Baby Groot and Rocket Raccoon.

    Upon seeing the poster, Chris Pratt said: “I WANT THIS!!!! SO AWESOME!!!”

    Obsidian’s art interpretation is truly unique and has allowed her to publish a series on her artwork called “Women in Hanbok” in 2010. Check out her other drawings below:
