I am a huge fan of Norse mythology, and I've been lucky enough to fuel this passion with some really cool projects over the years. The first is Gods of Asgard, my award-winning graphic novel from 2007. Second is Twilight of the Gods, a multimedia piece I collaborated on with composer Andrew Boysen, Jr. The third is Angrvadil, an upcoming fantasy book based on the ancient sagas of Fridhjof the Bold and Thorstein Vikingsson (to be published later this year by the fine folks at Saga Publishers International).
The show runs until February 10 in Gallery 140, the Design Tech gallery space in Bridgeman Hall at Bemidji State University. The opening reception is January 17 from 5-7pm (CST), which is free and open to everyone.
This blog has hit a minor lull recently, and aside from the usual holiday travels for which I take time off, there is another reason. On Wednesday, January 18, 2012 I will be having an opening for a solo show – something I haven't really done in over 5 years. The show is called Visions of the Norse Myths, and it is comprised of artwork from a few different projects I've done over the last few years, all of which relate directly to Norse mythology.
This is where we post news, announcements, product launches, and musings on the design process. All posts written by Erik Evensen unless otherwise noted.
