Greek-and-Roman-Mythology

10

They’re all here! I took it upon myself to create an illustration of a Mythological creature or character for every letter of the alphabet, trying to span across a multitude of cultures and creature-types. Another thing I wanted to accomplish with this project was to find some the more unusual and/or obscure creatures that don’t get as much representation in artwork. Individual Tumblr Posts with said creatures’ descriptions are below.

Again, I’ll be making this into a small run of books as a way to test the waters. If there’s more demand for a larger run, I’ll definitely be looking into it!

Myth Parallels → The Queen of the Gods (pt I)

“she spun herself a crown of gold,
thrones of bones and citadels.
to the deaf stars she screamed:
make me queen or i’ll make you bleed.” —AMBITION | M.J., via @fairytalesques

Female marble statue, believed to be a Roman-era copy of a statue of Artemis by the Athenian sculptor Cephisodotus the Elder (fl. ca. 400-360 BCE).  Now in the Capitoline Museums, Rome.

“Oh, but I don’t abide by your time frame, giant,“ Reyna said. "A Roman does not wait for death. She seeks it out, and meets it on her own terms.”
