Hey, I see that you don't update anymore and that I should contact you on tumblr. I think I'd like to buy this piece as a print, as I enjoy both Art Nouveau and Dionysus. Is that in the cards?

Actually, Dionysus in his original Greek incarnation WAS a handsome young man.  It was when the Romans took over that he was re-shaped as Bacchus, the little fat man

I have a serious love for this. The purple suit, the "come hither" smile, EVERYTHING. Dionysos *is* a hottie.

I found this while searching for images of him for a blog post I'm doing and I'm all "THIS IS PERFECT!" But I don't want to use it without permission, of course. I don't remember if I already asked this. I've slept since.

Cool. I really like your interpretation!!!

Is it just me or does he kind of look like a red-headed Benedict Cumberbatch?

I think you should continue drawing Greek gods, this is nice.

The good news is, Dionysius ages up in other forms of art. |D
