PG Mythmaking Show 4: The Bird of Hermes

surreal bird alchemy philosopher stone

I did this piece for the 4rth annual Mythmaking show at PG. The show hangs until April 15 and has a ton of amazing art, I’ll try to get down there and snap pix before it comes down.

As for my piece, it represents a couplet from the Ripley Scroll, a medieval text on magic and alchemy.

“The Bird of Hermes is my name/Eat my wings to make me tame.”

I did her as part of a series of original “anime style” designs for Evillecon 2016! (Which, by the way, was incredibly fun.)

East O the Sun West O the Moon: Two Versions

This is based on an old fairy story from the north, one I always liked because the girl set out to save her lover from a curse and not the other way around.

In fact, that polar bear you see is her lover, an enchanted king who must go to a golden castle East o the Sun and West o the Moon (pictured above) to marry the one who cursed him…unless the woman who loves him can break the spell in time.

As usual, this is available as journals, shirts and other items at Redbubble and Society6!
