The Goddess Tales picture book is a series I am currently working on based on tales in the Chinese Book Tales of The Mountain and The Sea. It is a book written in Ancient Chinese. I want to translate it into Modern English and bring more awareness to the Chinese culture.
Within all the myths, I chose to empathize with female characters since I find it very interesting that many female characters are portrayed as powerful figures in ancient Chinese mythology. One of the strongest female figures is Nüwa (女媧). I have been making a series of illustrations about her. She is going to be in the first stories in the book. She is the goddess that created human beings and saved the world in Chinese mythology like the God figure in the bible.
