Arachne (“Spider”) is one of my favourite mythological characters ever :D And she wasn’t a goddess or a nymph, she was a mortal woman!
Arachne was an amazing weaver who someday went so far as to say she was even better than Athena. Wrong, girl, that’s not the way with the Olympic gods! Athena was offended and set a contest between them. There are two stories about what happened next:
1- Arachne won the contest because she was awesome AND Athena got mad AND, plus, Arachne made a tapestry about the loves, lies and all the dirty affairs of the gods, so it was even worse (Arachne was a rebel, yeah), and Athena got even MORE MAD AT HER. And she slapped her and turned her into a spider.
2- Arachne lost and hanged herself. Athena took pity on her and turned her into a spider, so she could continue weaving.
I always loved how brave and haughty Arachne was ;)

GATHERERS, another new one for SooJin Buzelli at PlanSponsor. This is for an article about how healthcare and retirement planning can work in unison.

I liked all my sketches for this, though, as usual, only one of them actually works for the prompt. It usually takes me a bit to really suss out the core of the article. There’s a balance that the working sketch strikes that none of the others do.

When these projects pop up, and I can more or less draw anything, as long as it relates back to the topic, I almost always try to exhaust whatever current topic my mind is focused on, before trying different subject matter. Last time it was knights, this time it was strange animals. 

I usually get a lot of color advice from Kali, but she had a bigger hand in this one than usual. Pretty much steered the whole ship for a little while.

I’ve been itching to share this for a while now. My last project was Cinderella, and since there’s already one version of Cinderella for Far Faria, I decided to do a Filipino version version just to mix it up. 

You can download the app to read it here!
