Super Albino: Llamas are awesome! (131)
My Bio
I am a PhD in Scandinavian studies, and have taught courses in Norse Myth, literature, language, and history, Scandinavian folklore and literature, Swedish language, and other subjects since filing my dissertation a few years back. Have taught at UC Berkeley, UCLA, and Gustavus Adolphus College, and translated the book Heavenly Bodies by Ola Sigurdson on the theology and philosophy of the body. Also a published poet (small time still), with recent pieces in Ideomancer and Everyday Poets. I've started a blog (Vikings, Books, Etc) where I've been writing book reviews, posting pictures of vikings, and other things. Mostly work with either digital (photoshop and more recently painter) or pen brush, more often the latter recently. In addition to DeviantArt, here are my websites:

Thank you!

Cool! I love all the little red stugor in Sweden. I saw the red paint used sometimes in Norway too, so I figured it would be fair to include it here. Plus the painting will be displayed in the Scandinavian department I was a part of last year in southern MN, so I wanted a clear motif that screamed "Scandinavia", haha...

I'm glad I was able to get that feeling across. :)

Glad you like it! :)
