Butes, my original myth

A fellow classmate and I were tasked with the creation of an original myth in the Spring of 2018. We created a myth surrounding a man called Butes, and the creation of dad jokes. This is a light-hearted myth, but one centered around the traditional heroic plot of the myths of ancient Rome and Greece.

Hello all! I am here to comment on my lack of presence over the last year or so.

Thank you for bearing with me, and I look forward to showing what I’ve been working on!
