I love Norse mythology. Loki was the trickster god, who disguised himself as a white mare in order to distract a giant's horse. (Long strange, convoluted story but Sleipnir, the 8 legged horse you may have seen me draw, was born.)
That's what's great about Norse mythology - these crazy gender/cross dressing mix ups.

The background is from an image of Northwood asylum, a decayed, abandoned old mental institution. There's a site by an urban explorer where these sorts of photos are posted, and I find them very inspiring. Here's the one I used as a reference. [link]
