Vajrapani Yaksha
It's been about 6 years since meeting my patron deity in Japan. I thought I'd use this time to reflect on their appearance and hone my drawing abilities. Vajrapani may be regarded as the Buddhist equivalent of the Greek go Herakles and the Germanic god Thor. Originally conceived of in the early literature as a nature spirit, their character and appearance was developed within the Mahayana tradition. Although the wrathful manifestation is most common, my inspiration comes from their more docile, androgynous form.
In the Zone
Reality is created by the mind because the mind cannot exist without reality. Both are transient and they depend on each other for survival.

Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
I am an illustrator/cartoonist aspiring to build my presence within the artist community. While I have an extensive history of contributing to video game fan art, I have since become involved with the Buddhist and Pagan communities. My spirituality has served as an inspiration to continue a career in the visual arts. I hope that Deviantart will prove to be a supportive community to explore which direction to go from here. Blessed be.
