I used to be friends with someone who got me thinking and writing about the story of Medusa from a different perspective. This drawing was inspired by a terrible story we tried to collaborate on that made Medusa the sympathetic character: raped by a god, punished by his wife, finds herself a cave to live in, and is just minding her own business when some shithead hero shows up to steal her treasure and kill her. In this drawing, she’s just reading a book and drinking tea when he shows up.
