STWG- Death of Hyacinth Picture

For the Final Project in my Mythology class we had to do something creative using the legends we'd learned about.
I decided to do short comics about some of the more humorous ones!

Welcome to Storytime With the Gods!

The Death of Hyacinth is the story of Apollo(the blond) and his lover Hyacinth(brunet) who one day went out into a field to practice throwing a discus. Hyacinth threw the discus only to have it rebound off a rock and hit him in the head... killing him!

Some stories go that the West Wind was jealous of Apollo's relationship with Hyacinth and blew the discus back killing him and other say that it was Gaea (mother earth) because she didnt like Apollo but I liked it as it being a complete accident!
