So the other day the newest issue of National Geographic arrived. My husband hollered, hey hunny! Look! You gotta read this! Oh yes. Vikings. As you may have gathered from my signature, I am Swedish-American. Actually born Swede but I have my U.S. Citizenship too.

I like to stay connected to my heritage and so this article was an awesome read. I was especially happy to see that they found that there were female commanders! Girl Power.

As it so happens, most of my game characters are tanks. If they are not tanks, well, then I usually play them as such anyways if at all possible.

As for how this relates to my artwork, well.... I am considering doing some more drawings of horses in war armor etc. What do you think?
