The Hodlssey tells the story of Hodlysseus, the ultimate Hodlr, and his journey back to Bithaca after the long Fiat wars with perils at sea and vengeful deities.

A Hero’s Journey in 6 parts:
-Each part of the story is told through a unique oil painting on a hand made replica of a Roman Wax tablet
-Each Tablet comes with a hand carved stylus made of Mespilus Germánica wood and a handmade leather pouch to keep it in
-Only 6 will ever be made

Wax tablets were used in Ancient Rome as a reusable and portable writing surface. They are panels of wood, tied together, carved out and filled with pigmented bee's wax that form the writing surface.The stylus is hand carved from Mespilus germanica wood..

Part 3 - Blockaeolus:
After their misadventure in Bearphemos’ cave, Hodlysseus and his crew visited Blockaeolus and his family in their palace. The latter gave them hospitality for a month and provided them a west wind to carry them home to Bithica. He also provided a gift of an ox-hide bag containing all winds but the west. Hodlysseus and his crew members traveled steadily and anxiously for several days, but with Bithica in sight, Hodlysseus sank overpowered by sleep. His men proceeded to indulge their curiosity to see the costly presents which they thought the bag contained, opened it unwittingly, and out burst the imprisoned block size wars with such a roar that the force drove the ship back to Blockaeolus' island.
