Wanted to share a tiny tiny bit of my new book:
I think I have been a true creep from a young age. While all the other kids in my grade school were reading A Wrinkle in Time and all the other girls in my middle school were really excited to buy their first bras, I was reading murder bios of kids who killed their parents and throwing my white training bra away in the 6th grade girls bathroom garbage can. I collected dirty, used stuffed animals from strangers garage sales and had a running subscription to Horse Illustrated. I didn’t fit in, which essentially made me just another human being on this earth looking for a tribe. I wasn’t girly enough for the other girls and I wasn’t boyish enough for the other boys, so I was left sitting in a grey area, a condescending fork in the road. I hated sports but I also hated dolls, I never owned a Barbie and I wasn’t good at running. I was tough but also liked sequins. When I was in elementary school I ended up becoming best friends with a grey area girl and a grey area boy, Billy and Colleen. Billy was weird and hilarious and wore cowboy boots to school everyday. He was good at BMX biking and frog catching and we used to play board games at his house all the time. Colleen was strong, funny good at soccer and baseball, she was smart and loved animals as much as I did. They were all the parts of myself that I was self conscious about, the areas inside that were truly me, wrapped up in a confused web that had no ending. It was from the tiniest spider, trying to survive, trying to catch something...it came out when we laughed and ate popcorn together playing nightmare on Saturday nights. It spun its web in the kites we flew and the chalk we used all day to draw our stories on driveways. My spider was grey and the cobwebs traced my spirit, delicate and intricate, weaving its way past boxes, past genders, past colors till it’s safe inside whatever I am supposed to be,idly holding my palm out while Colleen and Billy plucked out the burnt kernels and placed them lovely in my hand..saving me..just by knowing me, letting me eat my favorite part of the popcorn while giggling together somewhere lost in the 90s.

Let's use this as a more formal introduction to Eiríkr Helgisson, hunter and blacksmith. Really Ace, too.
When he's not out hunting, he's usually seen joking around in the settlement. He's a cheerful man that loves celebrating life and every little, insignificant achievement.
He's awfully brave, a dad friend and a huge, mischievous bitch.
Do not let this fool you; Eiríkr might appear to be just a loud, rowdy man, but his mind is always active.
Eiríkr questions his environment all the time. He's always seeking answers. This skepticism is partly why he's quite ahead of his time.
He's deeply interested in medicine and will always study the carcasses of the animals he hunts, for as long as the other members of the settlement let him. They're very annoyed by this habit of him, they just wanna eat, man.
Several episodes of illness and reflection made him lose all faith in their gods. He holds a grudge against the tribe's pagan ways and extremely dislikes sorcerers.
It would seem as if this were the only cause for his hatred towards Andvéttr, but the issue runs deeper. He's the only person in the settlement Eiríkr can't stand. (For now).
He shares symbolism with the nordic god Tyr. You know, the One Hand God. Eiríkr has two.
Go figure. (Literally)
( Eiríkr is told to take Andvéttr with him on an exploring party, much to his dispair. Andvéttr is the settlement's official ritual master, so he shall 'bless' whatever new lands they find.
The boys get lost in a snowstorm and stumble upon a Haugr (old norse-icelandic for mound) This time, it appears to have a burial chamber inside. Andvéttr refuses to go, but Eiríkr, of course, has no trouble trespassing. ) #art #artoftheday #instaart #instaartist #myoc #oc #originalcharacter #eiríkrhelgisson #originalstory #norse #artistsoninstagram #digitalart #digitalartwork #digitalartist #draw #drawing #characterdesign #dailyart
