Sketchbook 11 Picture
Daily sketch. Was thinking about Anglo-Saxon tribalism and spirituality. Occurred to me that there are several "Sax" goddesses in the Norse myths, Saxnot, Jarnsaxa. Ayuh. Connection. Ergo sketch. Not sure why, but the sketch makes me think of Joan d'Arc. However, the woman, Saxnot, Saxon Goddess, is shown as a Valkyrie or otherwise as a Shieldmaiden, hoisting high the Cross of Saint George. Why? Because it's easier to draw than the White Wyrm of England.
