Nursing a viper by KateKaz Nursing a viper by KateKaz
New project dance :dance:

I know itís been a long timeóbut now I can finally start explaining why! Aside from a ton of freelance work [to pay the bills] Iíve also been starting work on my next graphic novel! Authored by Robert Rodi and to be published by Oni Press, the story is an intense, action-packed drama about Cleopatraís daughter, Selene, and her struggles to return Egypt to its former glory.

This illustration features a young Selene with her foster father Octavian, Augustus of Rome.

There's more to come, so keep your eyes peeled! You can see the process of this illustration on my Tumblr here: [link]

Octavian was nothing more than a bastard, a bloodthirsty murderer, he really was sick! Octavian I bet raped Selene when she grew up! and his evil wife livia  THAT WOMAN WAS AN EVIL BITCH!!!!

Selene is one of my favorite people in history. Do you have any of her and Juba?

Kate, if you're doing stuff with Ancient Rome I can't not recommend to you Mike Duncan's excellent History of Rome podcast. It's not much of a visual help but it's sparked such an interest in Roman history with me. It's incredibly informative and really entertaining.

Also I'm really excited you're doing a project like this!!!
