ATAI

I have taken on a challenge, once AGAIN! Well…I challenged myself rather. Often I see nothing but representations of the same “popular” pantheons: Egyptian, Greco-Roman, Japanese (this could be my bias though ^^;). I have even seen artists on Instagram depict Hawaiian Gods and Aztecan folklore! Representation of various traditions across world media may be slow going, but at least there’s movement at all. While it’s true that Western pop culture, at least here in the States, has favored the Greco-Roman sphere (then again Anime tends to depict these deities a lot too..and German ones..^^;)…BUT! I decided to try drawing my lil take on some African gods. Let’s go to Nigeria!
