I developed this illustrations as a personal proyect, I am a big fan of greek mythology and art deco so my approach in this particular project was just blend the two, This first series feature 3 characters from the ancient greeks: Aphrodite, Hermes and Icarus.
Aphrodite was the ancient Greek goddess of love, beauty, desire, and all aspects of sexuality. She could entice both gods and men into illicit affairs with her beauty and whispered sweet nothings. Worshipped by men, women, and city-state officials, Aphrodite also played a role in the commerce, warfare, and politics of ancient Greek cities.
Hermes was the ancient Greek god of trade, wealth, luck, fertility, animal husbandry, sleep, language, thieves, and travel. One of the cleverest and most mischievous of the Olympian gods, he was the patron of shepherds, invented the lyre, and was, above all, the herald and messenger of Mt. Olympus so that he came to symbolise the crossing of boundaries in his role as a guide between the two realms of gods and humanity.
Icarus was the young man who fell from the sky when the wax that fastened his wings to his body was melted by the heat of the sun. The story of Icarus is one of those legends of Greek mythology that fascinates audiences because of his desire to go beyond human boundaries and the tragic consequences this brought about.
The vector artwork was created in  Adobe illustrator, above there is a preview of the vector work at play.
