The God of Mischief

The God of Mischief

Personal Work
The shape changer, the sly one, the trickster, the original fool. Loki has always been one of my favorites to read about in Norse Mythology. In fact, in painting this illustration of him, I found out that he is the main pool of knowledge I have for Norse Myth. Most of the other things I recall vividly are branched off from his deeds, good or bad. You can see a few of them in this painting, I hope fans of the character can make them all out.

Seven Deadly Sins (3 of 7)

Three of the illustrations to the Seven Deadly Sins project I'm working on.
In gossamer sheets,
for more she weeps,
an angel foretold,
wanders in her abode,
and all he has,
is everything she wants.
(Personal Work)

Everlasting famine,
a life of hunger.
Long has it ate,
on living or dead,
"Come to me," it spoke.
"You’re my daily bread."
(Personal Work)

The waters of rage,
are eager to drown,
look below - no never!
look up - and never down,
for the red eye is there
and you are peace.

Bound in Mythology

Personal Work
Artemis in the style of my mythology with bondage theme. The idea was for her to be vengeance for those without the means to do it themselves. For those who were subjected to assault and had no way out of it, save to pray at the temple of Artemis. There they would find a plume of saffron to lay in their assaulter’s chambers and mark them for Artemis to exact justice. . . and that she did.
The Rapture of Ganymede
Personal Work If you don’t know the tale of Ganymede and Zeus, feel free to Wiki it up, but for a nutshell version: Zeus, as an eagle, abducted Ganymede, a beautiful shepherd boy, to be the cup-bearer for the gods. Zeus granted him youth and immortality and all the gods were pleased to have him, except that of Hera, Zeus’ wife, who feared Ganymede as a rival for Zeus’ affection. To please her, Zeus placed Ganymede in the stars as the constellation, Aquarius. The End.

Daken from Marvel

I didn't know a thing about this guy until I had to do a painting of him. Interesting character, not your average Marvel hero...or villain. Nice to see a really grey character who's got his own run going on. Leave it to Wolverine to spawn a character who does that!
