“Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. When we die, our bodies become the grass, and the antelope eat the grass. And so we are all connected in the great circle of life.”
The Lion King - Part 1
The story of Scylla and Charybdis from Homers The Odyssey.
For a bit of dramatic effect, I changed Charybdis from a monster or a whirlpool into a waterfall.
This was a project for my advanced illustration class in which It’sMatty encouraged me to try new things. Some of the things I tried to rangle were an environmental focus rather than figural one and a different color palette from my usual reds and blues.
It was a fun project, but I’m not sure if I like it yet, I’ll have to stare at it a little while longer.
THE GREAT AMERICAN NOVEL
