This comic book is a partner piece to complete my album. The book tells the full story of the characters and the album shares the emotions and themes through music.
As I began writing my album, I was searching for a name that meant bringer of light or daughter of light, and I came upon: Artemis.
I immediately became so intrigued by this mythical creature, who she is and what she represents. She is the goddess of the hunt, the protector of fertility, but my favorite thing about her is that she is the Goddess of the moon.
Sometimes I look up at the moon and am overcome by her bravery. Every night she fights the darkness alone; and even when she is only a weak, tiny sliver, she still has the courage to shine. Something I too feel like a weak sliver covered in shadow - something I think we've all experienced in one form of another. Darkness is a part of life the same way it's a part of the lunar cycle. But, like the moon (and like Artemis) we all have the ability to shine in the midst of great darkness, and eventually become whole again.
I loved these themes so much I wanted to tell my own story of Artemis.
