Today’s Kickstarter update was a musing on what an illustration of Poseidon Phytalmius might look like. There are so many really excellent pictures drawn of Poseidon relating to the ocean, but not so many covering his earth-god aspects. That’s really part of why I want to illustrate Depth of Praise, to visually call out his more-than-just-the-ocean-ness.
Of course, if I completely ignore his watery ways, I may end up all wet myself. Rest assured, breathless reader, I shall not. Indeed, my first illustration has been sold, and I am contemplating creating a few more to capture such epithets as “he who dashes against” and “of the coast” in my inimitable style. While you wait, feel free to dangle this post in front of anyone who might be willing to help get this project funded, or who has a bunch of friends in such circles.
