Monsters & Beasts
Tales Imagined from Greek Myths
This story started with just random border doodles. I had no idea where I was going with it until I stumbled upon a Greek myth book and all the animals I doodled happened to have their own Greek tale. Everything unraveled after that. Monsters & Beasts is composed of five brief renditions of tales from Greek mythology featuring the beasts: Actaeon & Artemis; Typhon, Aphrodite, Eros, & two fish; Arachne & Athena; Medusa & Athena; Stymphalia & Man-eating Birds.
