Artwork Description

Inspired by the Greek myth of Medea, a.k.a. "That crazy lady who killed her kids to spite her husband". Good story. Gruesome, but good.

The serpents represent the serpent-drawn chariot Medea escaped on after she killed her children. The pregnant belly represents, of course, her children (in some twisted fashion), and the knife is the knife she killed them with. Not that she's going to stab her belly. Ick. I dunno. ^__^;

And those are tree branches coming out of her hair. Because I felt like it.

Pencil, Prismas, gel pens and gold Sharpie pen (Pretty!).
