MYTHOLOGY MEME - [1/7] NORSE GODS/GODDESSES: HEL
"Hail to you, Hela, Grandmother Death.
Silent your wisdom, yours my last breath.
Reading our wyrd in cobwebs and lace,
Ancestor´s hostess, grant us your grace.”
I haven’t quite worked out how to capture their features yet.
/Dorian isn’t hurting John btw. I only later realized it can be interpreted that way but nope, that totally wasn’t my intention.
In this time of term papers I wanted to draw my patron deity, Bullshitticus, god of students and general last minute fudgery, sitting upon his Golden Futon, attended by the muses Caffeina and Thesaurae, whose powers of artificial energy and pretentious vocabulary can be invoked in case of the all-nighter.
I like to think he’s Dionysus’s second cousin or something.
This is genius…
all wise words from the sagest of the sage.
O Bullshitticus, master of my fate, please watch over me from now until the end of finals, amen.
I CAN LISTEN TO IT NOW
