the odyssey

one of the projects i completed this year was a series paintings based on the odyssey for author Sarah Schmelling's upcoming book, Maidens Who Don't Float. a humorous retelling of literature through Facebook, the whole darn thing started with an article for McSweeney's: an account of hamlet's facebook status updates. the book will be released on august 25. pick one up when you can!

these are from the photo album of odysseus's recent trip through the greek isles. looks like fun! for more good times, please visit Sarah Schmelling's, "Maidens Who Don't Float"!
