I've got an etsy shop now! www.etsy.com/shop/CallePaints

Also, my instagram is now "callepaints" instead of "idrawvikings" (my tumblr is still the latter).

Sorry I've been posting so little here on DA lately--recovering from my injury followed by a fruitless job search and moving back to CA made it difficult to keep up with all corners of my social media empire (lol). A lot of the paintings (originals!) I've been posting here are available or will be available on my etsy shop, and several are available as prints either here or on my Redbubble shop--if anything strikes your fancy, please feel encouraged to pick it up! I'm still jobless and have a ton of medical debt from my accident last year (stinking US insurance system), so any sales are super welcome.

Hey folks, the Midwinter Art Contest is here at the Norse Mythology blog! Award winning Blogger Karl Siegfried has started hosting annual Midsummer and Midwinter art contests at the Norse Mythology blog--topics for pictures should be Norse-themed, though Scandi folklore works as well, as long as you are sticking to the proper seasons. Preferably hit on traditional practices for that time of year. You can read more at my blog or at Karl Siegfried's post on the contest itself. The celebrity judges this time around are Icelandic scholar Dr. Helga Hlaðgerður Lúthersdóttir and renowned comic book illustrator Steve Parkhouse--you can read more about both of them at the contest post on Karl's blog. I got first place (!) at the last midsummer contest--but you know, I am totally amateurish compared to so many of the folks out there doing Norse-themed art, so GET ON IT! It would be great for this contest to stay on as a regular feature at the Norse Mythology blog, but folks have to keep submitting to keep it going.

Can't figure out why my photoshop modified copy of my latest moleskine sketch won't load--all I've been able to do so far is convert it to a PDF and upload it. I've resaved the file, emailed to myself, all sorts of stuff--still gives me an error message when I try to load it. Argh.

I was interviewed at Paper Tape magazine! Forgot to post about that earlier, but here is the link: papertapemag.com/post/56407569…

Apparently they liked my blog, and contacted me a few months ago to talk about my field (Norse mythology, etc) and about my art. We chatted about how I decided to pursue an academic career in Old Norse literature and culture, about my current research, about the blood eagle ritual and whether it has any roots in reality, and about just how much more complex supposed "Viking Culture" is once you actually study it in depth.

Check it out and pass it on!
