NORSE GODS ARE GO!

Done!!

Last week "Nordiska gudar" (Norse Gods) was sent off to the printers, after three years of hard work. 

The book will be out in stores in late July - you can preorder it here:

And, how better to celebrate this momentous occasion than with my take on Ragnarok - the last painting made for the book. Apparently I needed a looming deadline and my heavy metal playlist in Spotify to finish this sucker...



Speaking of heavy metal here´s Loki in his aspect of Lord of the Endtimes
This may arguably be the most "metal" painting I´ve ever done...

  2. Så fantastiskt! Jag har följt dig ända sedan jag såg dina illustrationer i Starshine Legacy/Star Stable/Star Academy när jag var tolv år, d.v.s. i ungefär 11 års tid. Jag äger Nordiska Väsen som ett kärt alster i bokhyllan och ser fram emot att lägga ytterligare ett verk från dig i min samling.

    Allt gott!

  4. Just saw it today in a library in Luleå and bought it right away. Congratulations Johan. Amazing illustrations. I've been showin pictures to a friend who is also interested in norse myths and she could answer right away what was the picture portraying. She also said often "Just like I imagined!"
