30 Day Art Challenge, Day 14: Favorite Fairytale

Having recently ripped through Marissa Meyer’s ‘updated’ versions of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel, I think I have a new appreciation for fairytales.  However, I think I would turn to mythology, and, as a nod to my favorite fandom (*SailorMoon*cough*), I like the story of Selene and Endymion, which is equal parts romantic and tragic (with a little bit of a goddess taking advantage of a mortal).  I think it’s the nuanced unrequited love thing that appeals to me.
