outcasts of Gwynedd

In Welsh mythology, specifically a story from the Mabinogion, there is Gilvaethwy and his cousin Gwydion. The short story is that they ticked off Math (one of the Welsh Gods) and thus were turned into a hind and stag for a year, then a boar and a sow, then a pair of wolves. Living as each animal for a year and returning to Math with thier offspring. Never tick off a god... not only will they change you into animals, but they will change your gender and place you in incestuous relationships too! Colored Pencil and watercolor. The border is gold pen, but it doesn't show well in the scan :P

There are no more wolves in Ireland, but this is my take on what hapened to the last.

Dance With Me

Mix of a frustration story of trying to fit in, plus a bit about how I view music.
