Yggdrasil and the Nine Realms of the Norse by priscellie Yggdrasil and the Nine Realms of the Norse by priscellie
Each map presents its own challenges, but this map for Kevin Hearne's Iron Druid Chronicles #5: Trapped was perhaps the most challenging one yet. I had so much information that needed to be crammed into one small paperback page, but I also wanted it to hearken back to the elegance of the ancient Norse aesthetic, which is more decorative and stylized than informational. It was a tough balance to walk, but I love where I came out in the end! The knotwork alone took a solid week. My brain was bleeding. :D

I love Norse mythology.  It's way better than Greek mythology.:happybounce:

I bought a copy of this wonderful print from you when at Kevin Hearne's Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore book signing June 25. I'm so glad you were in residence at MGB also! And that you signed it for me. I had seen & loved your work in Jim Butcher's books & the Iron Druid series, but never imagined you'd be there in person, too.

I just framed it in a double-glass window frame and it looks incredible! Thanks SO much for being there, sharing with your fans, and including Ratatoskr, wonder squirrel, in all that knotwork. Looking forward to getting more of your amazing artwork soon. Cheers, Tatum

Nicely done. Best version of the Yggdrasil that I've seen.

Very cool. I've always thought of the land of the frost giants and the fire giants as being on either side of the earth (relflecting the way life initially emerged in the gap between ice and fire), but this is fine too, and with a lovely style.I see you've even included Nidhogg gnawing at the root... :)

Hi! Sorry, I very rarely check DA, so I didn't see your message until now. The request seems to have expired. Could you send another one, so I can accept it?
