Illustration Friday: Viking

This week’s submission for the topic. Again, not a subject that immediately had me punching the air, but again… going for it. I eschewed and foreswore (that’s satisfying to say out loud) a horned helmet thing, as I think I read somewhere that Vikings never, etc etc. – I could be wrong and quite frankly, who cares? I went for a Viking in today’s world. The inspiration came when once in Amsterdam, making for a bar in the rain, a bearded, wiry fellow, who’d clearly already made at least one bar, stepped very deliberately into my path and hoarsely, conspiratorially, said into my Viking face, in something like an Irish accent – ‘Don’t let them know we’re here, friend! They’ll be onto us!’

So here – our modern Viking, rather failing to remain under the radar.
