Modern Day Greek Gods

This illustration series explores how Greek gods could be linked to modern day male characteristics. I used Dionysus, the god of parties, Hades the god of the underworld and Hermes the god of travel (among other things) and gave them a modern twist. 

Dionysus

Dionysus

The god of wine, ritual madness, fertility, theatre and religious ecstasy in Greek mythology... So naturally he would be a modern day frat bro casanova who discovered wine last term.

Hades

Hades

Greek god of the underworld back in the day... But now, he is just your average goth emo guy who just can't even.

Hermes

Hermes

Messenger of the gods, guide to of the dead; the protector of merchants, gamblers, liars, and thieves.
The god of travel, trade, roads, and persuasion... naturally he would be riding a razor scooter in a tracksuit while wearing winged air force ones!
