A few days ago, I did a post on a documentary about Aphrodite, and today I still feel connected to Her. that's why, today I would like to share with you the work of artist Glynnis Fawkes because I am thrilled with it, and it's another beautiful way to enjoy the words of the ancients.

Glynnis Fawkes grew up in Portland, Oregon. After receiving an MFA in painting from Tufts/the Museum School in Boston, she travelled to Cyprus on a Fulbright where she published a book of paintings called Archaeology Lives in Cyprus, and a collection of Cartoons of Cyprus. Her recent comics often deal with ancient texts and themes. Her work has been included in comics anthologies, including The Best American Comics as a notable for 2012. She is also a member of ActivateComix.com. She currently teaches a course in Making Comics at the University of Vermont.

As part of her work concerning ancient Hellas, she has published illustrated versions of the Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite, and the Homeric Hymn to Dionysos which I will link to for you today. Enjoy them, alright?
