Greek Monsters by MommySpike Greek Monsters by MommySpike
Even though I'm disappointed in my son's band organization, I did agree to draw some Greek monsters for Halloween. (This year's theme is "The Odyssey") The sphinx looks quite a lot like the band director, beaky nose and all.

*cackles*

okay, just to let you know, satyrs, centaurs, tree nymphs are NOT monsters! my gosh, open your eyes when you read greek mythology, and if they are open, then get some new ones!

Love the Medusa. God practice should you ever do any New olympian related fan art.

Great pics! I wouldn't be surprised if they end up framed and hanging on the wall in the music room after Halloween is over.
What's the M on the centaur's flank for?
Sure hope they give in and agree to honor the agreement made, and let your son perform!

The "M" is for Mesquite. It's the high school logo.

Gah! You beat me to the punch, Christi. I have plans to do scenes from "The Odyssey" myself. I'm going to be using the movie adaptation starring Armand Asante as reference though because I want to do Circe the enchantress, the cyclops, and a lot of other beings. It will be quite a while before I do it though.
Thanks for the inspiration :D

I am LOVING that faun. What an impish expression! :heart: Its so great you have time to do art for things like your kids band. :) How cool of a mom is that?

I also like the inclusion of instruments on the characters, but why no banjo or ukelele for the Dryad and Sphinx?

Well, the Dryad is wearing the same outfit that the drill team/flag girls wear while marching. The tree is actually significant because their band's symbol is a tree (don't ask why, it's a dumb reason). The drum line has a thing where they play and everyone shouts "Watch out for that TREE!"

The sphinx is basically a caricature of the band director. *L* He's got a beaky nose and a long skinny neck.

Oh I just love these...
And I feel a special affinity with the Centaur, as I'm a Sagittarius who also plays the Trumpet (it's such a cool instrument!)
Beautiful work & kudo's to you for rising above everything to still produce beautiful art for them.

Oh, yes... my son plays trumpet so that's the centaur, Medusa the flute, the faun the clarinet, and the dryad is wearing the same outfit as the flag girls.

Oh, he's allowed to play in class -- just not perform at games and at contests. I've written some emails and gotten it off my chest. We'll see what happens.

oh, i see. still a bummer, though. especially since he tried so hard and improved so much (from F to A- is really amazing) and it's all a big stupid clerical error that he has to pay for...

Nope... he's still ineligible to perform but I gave my word I would do this. If I go back on that, I'm no better than they are.
