No horses were harmed in the drawing of this picture

Hey, it's another page from the upcoming Olympians Book 4, Hades: The Wealthy One!

You know what's hard to draw? A team of four horses falling down a giant crack in the Earth. Try finding some reference for that.


  1. Awesome.

    P.S. You should have a talking bubble coming from one of the two horses looking at each other, containing the words, "Boss really shouldn't do this. This is the third one this week."

  2. Originally I was going to include the story of Menthe in Hades, but it got cut for space/thematic reasons. I suppose she could have been one of the other two that week.

  3. The other could be Leuce. If my memory is right, Menthe and Leuce were both mistresses of Hades who Persephone trampled into the ground. Menthe became mint and Leuce became a popular tree (see what I did there. poplar, popular. You know, because almost every landscape painting in existance has one)
