For some reason I feel flattered by all this viking stuff. ;p Norway's got some beautiful old churches and museums and stuff with stuff from back then. All really amazing stuff. Let me know if you guys take the trip. ;)

"Finn" in norwegian means "find" (from "to find"). It sort of also means someone who search for something, I think. "Old Norse" might be different. (:


Great stuff, Gunwhale!

MY guess would be Findur. Like "Ne findur noko paa da nettur?" HA HA HA HA!


Gunwhale (or if it had been in Old Norse: Gunvald.) Looks like you have got your drawings near to the Norse mythology drawings and still got some of your style to it.

Well.. can't say I've seen it either, Blom. How sad is that. Here we are, the only two norwegians here, - and our country is famous for this one thing, and none of us have seen it. SAD. I've almost seen it, tho. I lived in Trondheim - and the sun only went down for a few hours during the night in the summer, - it never got really dark. I loved it! Walking around 4 o'clock in the morning and it felt like a light clouded afternoon, only dead quiet and still. Lovely. ;)

blablabla! :P

Now that we are exploring Norwegian traditions I here present you "Kapleik" that is a dance where the man is going to kick the hat down to show that he is a GREAT MAN. Best of all is if he lands on his feets agein. The fun thing is that this and breakdance can be danced arond eachother. So think of it as old traditions Norwegian breakdance.

Blom that last drawing is so cute. :D

I thought I'd have a go at this so I did one based on my comic I'm trying to write at the moment. Instead of having horns on thier helmets they have holes for thier horns to stick through. :D

Gunvald! I had taken a guess on how to translate my whale's name into Old Norse, and it looks like I was pretty much right. I had 'Gunnvald'. :D
And thanks for the kind words. All of this Viking art is good stuff. :D

Pascal, that first drawing is sweeeeeeet! Well, they all are, but I'm particularly excited about that one.

Don't forget--Vikings loved CHEESE!! That's another one!
