My name is Niklas Hellberg and I am the creator of encyclopediamythologica.com. 
The goal of this project was originally only to have fun and draw some fun creatures. I later wanted to increase my scope to become something of a bestiary. For now, this is not supposed to be some all-encompassing encyclopedia but just a place to get information about some of the worlds mythological and folk-lore creatures. 
This is an ever-ongoing project so expect creatures to be added slowly over time. The way I select creatures to add is a large wheel of names on google which I fill to the brim with every whacky creature, god, and other entity from mythology I come across. If you have some favorite creature it is most likely on the wheel so keep an eye out for that special creature!
I have been gone for a long but now I am back and I am currently in the process of adding sources to all of the creatures in this list. A thing to keep in mind is that of course, Wikipedia is a big source for many of these as it naturally contains a lot of information but I try not to only use Wikipedia, and whenever I refer to the sources I try to as often as possible refer to the source itself as well as read the information from that source. I say this so that you are not surprised if a page's source list might look similar to that of the source list on Wikipedia.
Also I might cycle a bit between activity and inactivity due to university, work, and other projects so if the page does not update very often you know why.
If you have any suggestions whether creature or otherwise please feel free to send a message to the webpage mail via the contact form below.
Thank you!
