I was doing some research on various personality archetypes, and there was one involving the gods and goddesses of Ancient Greece.  I found myself to be similar to the archetypes of Athena and Artemis. I drew this upon my findings that I wrote about here.

It didn’t quite turn out as I expected, but at least this was just a study, not a final image.  I intend to explore this more in depth in the future.  It’s a pretty interesting concept, I think all of us at some point have that natural curiosity to learn about our inner selves.

Lisa Lee is an artist and writer based in Southern California. She was educated at Cal State University Long Beach where she received her BFA in Illustration, and originally focused her career goal in animation and/or comic books. After eight years freelancing on various projects from web graphics to concept art she now devotes full time to painting and drawing as well as writing and producing graphic novels. She combines her past experiences in animation and graphic art with the elements of modern masters such as Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Keith Haring. Much of her style revolves around Expressionism and Pop Art, and she treats each piece independently of one another; in short, she uses different styles and techniques for different subject matters. Her interests spans a wide array, from social and political issues, popular culture, movies, history, mythology, and her own personal experiences. She tends to shift back and forth between the light and the dark side; her work will often reflect her mood. When not associating herself with art Lisa enjoys movies, listening to music, driving around aimlessly, and occasionally dabbles on weird hobbies such as cooking, jewelrymaking, and picking weeds.
