Mythology and Mythic Art Resources

current mood: informative

The following is my own personal collection of links relating to mythology, legend, folklore, fairy tales, etc. as well as to artists whom I feel draw upon such material in their work. I offer them as academic resources and sources of inspiration to everyone in this community (and hopefully to our future members as well!). Since the number of links a free LJ account allows is rather limited, I thought this might be beneficial.

If you have any additional websites to recommend, please let me know so that I can add them to the list! (This list will be continually updated., and I will delete most comments after suggested links have been added)

Thank you very much for your suggestion, but honestly I'm not willing to add this link to the list. The same would go for adding Amy Brown's website and likely a number of other popular fairy art sites. Truthfully, there are very few "fairy art" sites that I'm willing to include as I'm extremely discriminating in this regard.

Firstly, I feel that most of their work more appropriately falls into the category of fantasy rather than mythic art (not that there is anything inherently wrong with fantasy art, and admittedly the line between the two is often quite blurred).

Secondly (and I'm sure I will get a lot of flack about this), but I will not include them because I feel they lack artistic integrity and unfortunately much of their work goes against my own convictions as an artist. I've written essays on this topic and the phenomenon of faery art itself which go into more detail as to why I feel the way I do : Thoughts on Popular "Faery" Art and A Personal Philosophy of Faery Art. I apologize, but I will not add links which go against my principles.

I am also very discriminating as to the general Faery websites I will list, which is why that list is so short.
(Yes, your moderator has a definite bias in this regard.)
