Clytie Picture

"Her story is unique, for instead of a god in love with an unwilling maiden, a maiden is in love with with an unwilling god. . . Clytie pined away sitting on the ground out-of-doors where she could watch Helios, turning her face and following him with her eyes as he journeyed over the sky. So gazing she was turned into a flower, the sunflower, which ever turns toward the sun."

This is my take on the story of how Clytie turned into a sunflower. I could not stop laughing after I finished reading it and was instantly inspired to make this comic. Usually I just make something explode at the end of my comics but spontaneously turning into a sunflower works well too.
Gotta love mythology.
