Yggdrasil and WIPs

And just in time for my next three shows! Yggdrasil 11×17 posters will be proudly present at Evillecon, Art in the Wild and Earth Day Art Crawl…at least, while they last!

Here’s some process shots for you to sink your teeth into:

There are a few interpretations on which worlds make up the Nine Realms of Norse Mythology, and where exactly they abide in relation to the world tree. Here’s what I decided to go with:

1) Asgard [Aesir gods] 2) Vanaheim [Vanir gods] 3) Alfheim [light elves] 4) Midgard [humans] 5) Jotunheim [frost giants] 6) Svartalfheim [dark elves] 7) Muspelheim [fire demons] 8) Niflheim [ice and the dishonored dead] 9) Helheim [the land of the dead] And of course the rainbow, Bierfrost and the Midgard Serpent.

Yggdrasil is on Society6||Redbubble.
