Orpheus and Eurydice Picture

tumblr ver here!

I've got this wonderful book about all these greek myths and I love it so much
The author is so great with words and he makes all the deities/mortals seem so relatable and NOT omniscient and greek myths are just so well imagined that they are STILL RELEVANT TODAY

also PJATO

I plan on illustrating something from each chapter (a myth) of the book
So here's the best couple ever omg
Orpheus brings the animals out with his kpop sorry I mean greeky music

Then he married Eurydice and settled down so he didn't play music as often any more
One of his SASAENG FANS hunted her down, she ran away and died (wow smooth move) and Orpheus was like 'aw no way man' and he visited Hades down under (not Australia) to get her back. Hades was all 'aw shucks, yer a real tearjerker ok here's Eurydice she'll follow you but my word is only legit if you DONT LOOK BACK EVER ON THE WAY UP TO EARTH.'

He looked back.
everything SUCKS WHY DID IT HAVE TO HAPPEN LIKE THIS BLUBBER BLUBBY BLUB
