The world's creation stories have a colorful cast. Artist Noah MacMillan set out to capture nine such tales, from the Aztecs to the Inuit. "They almost always have the same prompt: How do you explain the sun and the moon?" says MacMillan, who researched traditional art and clothing to imbue his work with each culture's distinct "visual vocabulary." He used a combination of hand drawn and digital color processes, focusing on "how people responded to their direct environment" to tell their story.
