Successfully funded via Kickstarter in September, Dark Mythos: Creatures of World Mythology is my upcoming book of creature illustrations. The book is currently sitting at over 60 creatures from mythologies all around the world. Each illustration is joined by a short description. I hope to showcase many cultures and mythologies that are not common knowledge, in the hopes that it will encourage people to learn more about them and the people who created them.
Many of the pieces from the book are from my drawing challenge of one creature from mythology a day (#mythicmay). I selected myths from all over the world and completed each drawing on Yupo paper (a type of synthetic paper that doesn’t really allow erasing and re-drawing). I shared my list on social media, resulting in several hundred other artists joining in on the challenge.
Pre-orders of the book (due November 2019) are available via my store.
