I have been having a lovely time researching images for the next thing that Henry draws with his magic pencil – it’s going to be a scale model of a Viking ship prow, which gets him into all kinds of trouble!
I’d like to share some of the amazing things I stumbled across today, but I don’t know the copyright owners for any of them – the perils of Google Image-ing! So here are a collection of links; I hope you enjoy the images at the end of them.
A wonderfully engraved axe – I saw this at the British Museum expo, and it was outstanding. Not a prow, though!
Now THIS is a prow! How evil is this! Too creepy, though, it would give Henry nightmares.
These are cool, and so is this and this; but all a bit complicated for my lad to draw.
This is doable – but he’s trying to stay away from things that might bite 🙂
Now this beastie really, really wants to be chosen – its image kept on popping up. It’s cute, and sad – but maybe too complicated; I might go with this or this instead.
And this is the trouble that will show up 😀 His name is Snorri Snorrisen.
This is the last story to be completed of the next book, which should be ready to release just after Christmas.
I hope you enjoy my books as much as I loved writing them! Here’s my Amazon page.
