Custom of the Week: Daphne and Apollo

I am super excited about this week’s custom-that’s-not-a-custom because it has to do with the book I just started editing: Apollo and Daphne! If you haven’t read the Apollo and Daphne myth, find the nearest copy of Ovid’s Metamorphoses and start reading – it’s one of my favorites. So much so that I wrote a contemporary YA re-telling of the myth, which you are going to hear a lot about this year as I try to get it ready to send out. Needless to say, when I came across the following artwork of Daphne turning into a tree as Apollo looks on, I knew I had to feature it on my blog. In fact, it’s becoming my computer wallpaper as well!

Daphne and Apollo, by Xanadove

I love the surprise on Daphne’s face. I’m sure she did not expect her plea for help to end up turning her into a tree!

If you have a pony that you would like featured as Custom of the Week, please email me:
