Poor guy... although, I can't say he probably didn't SEE it coming. BAHAHAHAHAHAhaahaaaaa

This year's Junior Thesis theme is Greek Mythology: Transformed, with this being the first piece of eight in the series. Medusa was a Gorgon, a terrible monster with snakes for hair and a gaze that could instantly turn any onlooker to stone.

Five Days

Enjoy! <3

Poor embarrassed Medusa

haha this is cute. i always felt sorry for medusa. she was turned into a monster because Poseidon forced himself on her Athena's temple. and the years of not being able to interact with humans had turned her cold and and filled her with hatred. i want to see a version where she has a happy ending to her story

This is genius! The object, the character expressions and the satire. Amazing work!
