Four Temperaments Chart

I’ve been looking at ways of writing character groups that work; one of the classics is the Freudian Trio, (like Kirk, Spock, and Bones in Star Trek TOS) but since I’m working in an ancient world setting, the Four Temperament Ensemble, being based on ancient Greek concepts, seems to make more sense. I found some charts on the internet, but none had all the info, so I added some color coding and additional notes to one that was pretty good.

These go back at least as far as Hippocrates, c. 460 – c. 370 BC.

rtmone for Street art Air bnb Apartment in Athens

You have taken advantage of all the aspects of the house for the illustrations. Pipes, toilet flushes etc. Which were the difficulties that you faced or is a easy job?
There was no difficulty. The art director Yiannis Xindaras came up with the idea and it fitted perfectly with the casual street art culture of getting inspiration from the space itself and transforming it thereafter to something new. The surfaces were smooth, which makes the drawing much easier compared to the rough, uneven surfaces of the public spaces, which constitute the main canvases of our street excursions.

Given the amount of new “friends” that one will encounter when entering the apartment, in your opinion, which will be the visitor’s impressions and how easy will it be for him/her to relax in it?  
I guess that the visitors of this particular apartment will be fans or at least used to the aesthetics of character design and street art. Therefore, the positive impressions are expected. The ability to relax is a subjective issue. I, personally, sleep in an all-white room, but the majority of people that I know wish to be surrounded by decorations and information what is related to their culture.

call them demons, prayers from the deep
there has always been beauty
in their hollow-eyed stares that whisper
of candles long burnt out
and ashes scattered on the winds.

empty shells, they,
nothing but reservoirs,
holding the thrum of music deep with their heartbeats
wine-glass-stem bodies, they
wanderers, searchers, they.

they will tell you that the dead
sing the most beautiful arias
ethereal, haunting. like nothing
the world has ever head before.
their smiles are shark’s teeth necklaces -

- their voices sighing
all of the remembered ecstasy;
the promise of a hunger fulfilled.
there is a reason that none who see them
are ever seen alive.

(the music of dying
has always tasted the sweetest)

Which is the process that you follow and what time do you go out to create a piece?

I start by drawing several sketches until I end up with something I like, then I adjust it to the wall that I want. I don’t have a specific time, it depends on the circumstances.
