Illustrated Book Report: The Odyssey

You saw the RockStar’s work when she was five in the ground-breaking illustrated Shell Report.

I just thought you might want to know what she was up to now, at age fourteen.

Illustrating The Odyssey, of course….


My personal favorites are the Cyclops, seen again below (also a favorite of my daughter’s, apparently) and Penelope with arm akimbo.

Just where have you been all this time, Mister?  This story better be good!


I wanted the RockStar to draw Charybdis, because Scylla and Charybdis just go together like bread and butter, like mmm and Malabrigo.  But she seems to think it’s rather a challenge to draw a whirlpool as a stick figure.

  1. well instead of a head on a stick, why not a head on a cork screw? (with cork screw arms, (and no legs)

    (Helen –of troy.. yeah, from the iliad, not upstate ny or the wilds of michigan. any kid who takes to the classics should be encouraged!)

  2. I loved The Odyssey, although Rock Star’s image of Penelope seems more true to me than that of the patient wife spinning and weaving for ten damned years.

  3. Love the cyclops!
