Lady of the Sea-Chapter 7
            The chariot stopped before me, the hippocampi nickering and pawing the slick pebbles at their feet. Their tails writhed impatiently. Upon closer inspection, I saw that the mother-of-pearl accents formed waves and sea creatures, and of course, a trident right down the front. Poseidon stepped out of the chariot and approached me.
            Objectively, he was a rather handsome god. Tall, muscular, and deeply tanned skin like bronze, he stood taller than I. A rare but pleasing occurrence for me. A fine cloak of pale turquoise hung from his broad shoulders by a polished shell clasp. His rich teal chiton left one shoulder bare, exposing a chest, of which I made a point not to stare at, despite how tempting the idea was. Jet-black hair fell to his shoulders in thick waves and his beard was kept neatly trimmed, surprising for a man so lazy. A strong jaw

Hey, guys! I printed some more postcards (both the old ones and three new ones). These are a bit smaller than the ones I sold before, though. A6 format (105 x 148 mm). Anyone interested in buying? If so, just send me a note. :)

The price is 1 USD each, and the shipping is 2 USD (i.e. 3 USD in total). Payment through PayPal.

One of Sardinia's most peculiar mythological creatures is the Erchittu.
Similar to the Boe Muliache, the Erchittu is a man who "made meat of man or cattle" and escaped the law's punishment.
Each night, from midnight to 4 am, the poor man  turns into a one story tall ox with  steel horns, led around the town by the devil itself and a precession of lesser devils who play drums and torment the poor soul with torches and pitchforks.
Sometimes he will stop in front of a house and cry three times, and that means that a disgrace is about to fall on one of the inhabitants.

Oh, spooky!
Is he a character from Christian lore, or is a pre-Christian figure that was adapted to a Christian context?
Darennysmith Featured By Owner 5 days ago
It's currently Christian but scholars think that the bull-man may be one of the proofs of the bronze age sardinians being part of the Sea People, the feared Sherden/Shardana.
In fact, the bull-man not only has minoic traits, but during the carnival it is used as a scapegoat figure, like the judaic black goat... but as a man masked as a black bull

Love your stuff. The art and character interplay reminds me of Love and Rockets. Very interesting take on Greek mythology. I'm very stingy with my compliments but I had to write you. I'm getting a lot of enjoyment out of your work.

Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoy my comics and my personal take on Greek mythology. <3
Jaime and Gilbert Hernandez are two of my main inspirations.

Saw your picture of Athena on tumblr. It's awesome. Reminds me a lot of a similar-looking bust in the Altes Museum in Berlin. :)

Thank you! I was a bit inspired by the statue of Athena Parthenos. There she's wearing a helmet decorated with both a sphinx and two winged horses.
