Myths of the Mind

Myths of the Mind is a poetry picture project I started in 2012. I thought it would be fun to get assorted illustrators to do pictures for my series of myth poems. The project stalled for a while and I took it up again in 2016 and wrote a few more poems while I commissioned the last of the pictures. Here are the images I collected. This is in no way a commercial project; just one I did for fun. I'd love to hear which pictures my friends like best.
