ClassicsTober ’22

You may have heard of Inktober, where each day of October there’s a new word to use as inspiration for a drawing, painting, collage – any kind of artwork. Well, thanks to Greek Myth Comix, we now have the annual joy of ClassicsTober. Each day of October, we’ll put up a classically-themed word. Using these as inspiration, create any style of artwork and tweet it using the hashtag #ClassicsTober. If you don’t have access to a Twitter account, send it in to and we’ll tweet it for you.

4th October: Threshold

A doorway or a boundary to be crossed over. Sometimes in stories this has a symbolic meaning, representing a transition in life. Perhaps you could be inspired by a mythological threshold, such as the doorway to the Underworld, or perhaps you’re thinking of the threshold of an actual building from ancient times – perhaps where everyday Romans used to live or even something grander.
