I've been working on a series of drawings based on characters I've drawn on my trips to Greece. It all started with the first two drawings here. Exploring Kos 2 years ago I saw these locals on the roadside & drew them later from memory. The Greek islands are beautiful & the culture & environment so relaxed but it got me wondering what became of the Olympians & the lesser Greek gods? Did they grow old & retire? Do they tend olive trees & pick lemons? Do they now live amongst mortals?
CLOTHO (one of the Fates)
POSEIDON ( God of the ocean & guardian of the beaches)
The painted sketch above helped me work out the colour scheme for the digital version below.
DIONYSUS (In a restaurant I sat close to this Greek businessman who stuffed himself with wine & food while taking calls)
SIREN (This beautiful apparition will lure you to certain doom)
