Beauty and the beast by robinha81
Beauty and the beast

My favorite greek mythology is about Cupid and Psyche. I love their mysterious courtship. Psyche can’t see how Cupid looks like, but still falls in love with him and goes on to claim her love despite numerous obstacle his jealous mother, Venus throws on her ways. Psyche starts as naive girl and ends up a woman who takes charge and fights for what she wants. I was watching a stunning film by Jean Cocteau,”La belle et la bête” several years ago and I realized this fable is actually a variation on the story of Cupid and Psyche. And I dreamed about telling this story again in my own way someday. I wanted to make this story into a graphic novel, add more romance and adventure in the middle, sort of like all those fantasy comics I read when I was little. Oh, I love me a good fantasy romance comics!

In this drawing, I added the pomegranate, which is from another greek mythology of Hades and Persephone. In order to bound her to hell, Hades fed his unwilling wife pomegranate seed.

Daisey by robinha81

Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby.

It’s not supposed to be Mia Farror or Carey Mulligan from the movie, but Daisy from the book. I recently re-read this classic and I liked it even more than when I first read it in high school. I think I understand who these people are better now that I’m older. What a great book, it really transcends time.
