#sarah the mythchild kingslayer story-swallower #her will is as strong as yours and her eyes can be so cruel #and when she says her kingdom is as great as his it is because this is her kingdom #he is the raptor at her wrist and flies (takes; frightens; reorders time) at her word #she is the queen who makes herself; if persephone had no hades to offer her the pomegranate #she would have had to invent him #now come away with me child; to the water and the wild #find yourself on the edges of mazes and dreamscapes #and choose and choose and choose #have choices taken from you and choose anyway #(this is how women are made; in choosing)

MIKE MIGNOLA’S STUDIO
If you ever wondered what Hellboy’s creator Mike Mignola’s studio would be like, MTV gives you the opportunity to take a peek at the artist’s creative space. I don’t know about all of you, but I love everything about these images. Everything! [ source ]
Without a doubt, Mike Mignola is a great example of success for any independent creator. This year we celebrate 20 years of Hellboy.

The Monster Slayer Project is a contemporary visual retelling of the story of the Navajo Hero Twins, Monster Slayer and Born for Water. This project attempts to explore who these figures might be today, and what foes they might face. Our film is set in a small town on the Navajo Nation and follows our protagonists, Shondiin and Nathan Yazzie as they follow in the footsteps of the legendary Hero Twins to gain the ability to defeat fearsome monsters that have been emerging from the wilderness, and to solve the mystery of their origin.
Our film seeks to bring the story of the twins to a younger generation, and to create mainstream images of native characters who are strong, self-reliant, and motivated heroes. We want to make something that will appeal to a large audience, but especially to youth from the Four Corners region…The end goal of this project is the production of a feature film or television series to be produced in the Gallup area, and on the Navajo Nation. By melding the ancient storytelling traditions of the southwest with current revolutions in digital image-making and special effects, we seek to bring these characters to life.
