ODIN and FREYJA Picture

This set of illustrations was created for the website NORHALLA, depicting one of my passions: norse mythology.

As my keen followers will attest, I've always been a huge fan of the Old Gods of Valhalla and I have a lot of illustrations here in my Gallery to prove it (and more are coming!). But I believe these are my best interpretations to date. The brief was simple, mostly because I had to work with very few directions except in that I had to try and convey the original roots of the myths with my particular style.
Everything from the colors, to the atmosphere and details of the images are carefully planned and I hope my passion does indeed show.

In this particular pieces, we have the Allfather himself Odin and Freyja. Odin represents, personifies and is the source of what is known as divine inspiration, perspective, and insight as it relates to leadership, the pursuit of wisdom and knowledge, universal balance, and balance of priorities.
Freyja represents and personifies the same qualities as Odin, but it differs in that it relates to Odur. Odur being "divine madness", meaning the obsession, desire, love, lust for one's soul mate.

Hope you enjoy it and please visit the website if you can: www.norhalla.com/
