Random Drawing in Honor of the Viking Coloring Book!

If you haven’t had the chance to follow the Kickstarter campaign for a historically accurate Viking Coloring Book you be happy to here that it is going very well. Many thanks to those reading this who have been able to help out.

In honor of this I thought I would hold an art give away to help get the word out in the last week of the campaign being live. Two people will be drawn at random from those who share this post helping to spread the word about the Viking Coloring Book campaign. You do not have to be a Kickstarter backer to be eligible.

So- what do you win if you are one of those two lucky people? A piece of painted original art based on one of the motifs from the Coloring Book on 11″x 17″ [A3 size] vellum surfaced Bristol Board as well as a set of 10 Viking themed blank greeting cards.

Good Luck! Thank you for helping to spread the word about the Viking Coloring Book!

Campaign update

From Kickstarter

In case you missed the live broadcast this morning here is the link:

It was a little nerve wracking but mostly because I am much more used to presenting my work at conferences rather than being on camera. Many thanks to the cast and crew at Good Day Sacramento for setting everything up and helping to get the word out about the campaign.

Its really amazing to watch the word about the campaign spread around the world. Many thanks to Medievalists.net for interviewing me mid-week and spreading the campaign even farther. Here is the link for that, in case you missed it. http://www.medievalists.net/2016/01/13/the-viking-coloring-book-kickstarter-project-gets-funding/ I’m planning on a more complete thank you for everyone at the end of the campaign for helping but that one really needed to be addressed now.

Adult coloring books are what most adults are doing to relax and a local Viking Researcher has developed a Viking coloring book for adults.

Goal Met!

You may or may not have already heard but the Kickstarter campaign for a historically accurate Viking coloring book reached goal 1/9/2016 at 12:45pm PST, only 3 days after kicking off. Backers are still coming in (if you are one of these Hi!). I’m oretty amazed and honored everyone likes the idea and art this much. And Vikings, of course, because let’s face it- its why all of us are reading this blog now.

For now though I have a book proposal to finish up. More in a few days. 


What a Brilliant First Day of Campaign!

This morning I woke up to find that the Viking Coloring Book campaign was already one third of the way to its goal. Needless to say I’ve been pretty happy all morning that there are people who also want to make this happen. 

Onwards and upwards then! I’ll be trying to post often enough to keep up to date.
