Ajax and Athena

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This is a detail of a work in progress. This picture was inspired by Sophocles' 'Ajax.' Here, Athena goads Ajax into a murderous frenzy. In this state, he goes on a rampage and kills all the sheep and cattle captured in war, thinking they are Odysseus and his men.

Millie -- Part 5

This is the fifth and final chapter of the Millie story.

Millie -- Part 1

This is the story of Millie, an automaton with a mind of her own. The story is set in the late 19th century, and my idea was to capture the flavor of the period as faithfully as possible. Technology and science were developing rapidly at the time, and the advances of technology took on a mysterious, almost magical aura. The idea of a living machine was, as it is today, alluring, mysterious and a bit frightening.

Millie -- Part 3

The third chapter of the Millie story.
