Tom o' Bedlam pages 16 and 17 by RedgoldsparksPress Tom o' Bedlam pages 16 and 17 by RedgoldsparksPress
This is the only double page spread in the whole comic, so I edited the pages together. These pages are from my comic adaptation of  Tom o’Bedlam , English ballad written by a possibly mad poet sometime before 1615. The poem has eight verses with eight lines each, and a repeated four line chorus. 

First page: Tom o' Bedlam cover
Next page: coming next week
Previous page: Tom o' Bedlam page 15

Unfortunately this is the only page she appears on. But I love her, maybe I can draw her again for a separate project.

Hope so! I always Heart'd Artemis in Greek Mythology and thought she have got more story/myth/fable time. Nod Artemis had to have something special going something for. :D (Big Grin) After all she had the most spectacular temple built for her. [Life Is Strange]Chloe Dancing :3 pokemon gif Gardevoir 

Best woman power I could find. No Greek Goddess or female archer Emoticons. :(

Artemis is definitely awesome :) Her stories were often my favorites in Green Mythology as well!

But there are so few. As a little girl, she convinces Daddy Zeus not to force her to marry. Apollo tricks Artemis into killing her mortal lover. Artemis turn a hunter who stumbles upon her skinny dipping into a deer which is killed by his own hunting party. She shoots a bunch of giants in the butte during Mother Earth's last assault in Olympus. That's about it.

Artemis even gets cut out of the Apple of Discord story (Artemis is so way cooler and hotter than Hera) and the entire Trojan War which just about every other god and goddess fought in. What a rip!

I blame all the Christian monks for burning Artemis' myths along with Sappho's poems.
