About

the Myth about Myths: Greek Mythology

CA$ 10,501

The Myth About Myths originally started out as a fun little illustration project beginning in 2014 now a collection of zines!  Over the course of my life I've been enthralled with the characters portrayed in Greek Mythology but it was during a classics course in university when I first realized a few simple drawings of characters in mythology could make understanding these myths MUCH simpler!

I started with Greek Mythology in the hopes of turning my current group of zines filled 200+ characters into one solid Visual Dictionary of Greek Mythological Characters.

MiniZines previously printed for conventions!  Each of these are 5x7 inches and finished with velour laminate covers!

While the project both online and in small zine format has managed to captivate an audience of myths beginners and myths connoisseurs alike the ideal end format for this first stage of the project would be to collect the entirety of Greek Mythology into one big book: a visual dictionary of Greek mythological characters titled: the Myth about Myths: Greek Mythology

The approximate final dimensions of the project would be a full-colour ~200 page book with a french-fold velour cover (9 x 8.5 inches)!

The cover is not decided as of yet but a lot of the interior artwork is!  Here are some examples of characters I've drawn for this project:

The Myth about Myths aims to take mythology and return it to its roots, pulling from various known mythological sources and making them recognizeable in a mildly crude and humouristic way!

Risks and challenges

Any Kickstarter comes with risks and challenges. Luckily I've successfully funded two Kickstarter projects before this one and have learned how to manage around roadblocks. My main objective to be frequently communicative with backers whether there are updates or delays to the project! Backers will know what is happening every step of the way!
