This comic is borne of three distinct motives. First, my illustration work is nowhere near the level of quality I want, and comics are not only my favorite visual medium, but also ridiculously difficult and excellent practice for improving the ability to draw. Every panel is an activity in compositional problem-solving, and the narrative requires a flexibility that simply drawing for its own sake rarely does. Since this is the primary purpose behind this effort, you'll see a lot of experimentation and inconsistency as I grapple with best methods and styles. Some of these pages I'm proud of, and some I'm embarassed to show, but I've made a bargain with myself not to get caught up constantly retooling the illustrations.
Second, I love Greek mythology and Hellenic culture, language and art. Theseus is one of my favorite myths, and I'm using Plutarch's "Lives" --in addition to other extant writings-- as the basis for my structure.
Third, if I make anything in this world, my preference is that it's unabashedly stupid.
