2013 EDU: SL8B: Joseph Campbell's hero journey. The journey of life.

The journey of life.
The twelve steps of Joseph Campbell's hero journey
The Hero with a Thousand Faces (first published in 1949) is a non-fiction book, and seminal work of comparative mythology by Joseph Campbell. In this publication, Campbell discusses his theory of the journey of the archetypal hero found in world mythologies.
Since publication of The Hero with a Thousand Faces, Campbell's theory has been consciously applied by a wide variety of modern writers and artists. The best known is perhaps George Lucas, who has acknowledged a debt to Campbell regarding the stories of the Star Wars films.[1]
The Joseph Campbell Foundation and New World Library issued a new edition of The Hero with a Thousand Faces in July, 2008 as part of the Collected Works of Joseph Campbell series of books, audio and video recordings.

Yellow is the color of learning. 

Raph Koster, author of _A Theory of Fun for Game Design_, has said, "Fun is another name for learning." As a young hero, you live in a Yellow playground where it's safe to explore, try new things, make mistakes.

Purple is the color of seeking.
Red is the color of challenge.
Black is the color of failure, loss, and rethinking priorities.
Aqua is the color of triumph.
Each painting tells its story
