September- 2 months to go!

Two months before the completed Viking Coloring Book heads to the printing facilities at ACMRS. Less than two months. Its going well- more than 200 motifs illustrating artifacts, landscapes, the flora and the fauna relating to the Viking world have been inked and scanned. More than 50 of the planned pages are plotted of the intended 75 and that is a pretty cool feeling.


Some of the coloring book motifs on the desk.

I’ve been arranging event appearances for myself recently. Here’s the current schedule:

9/24/2016 Viking Snack Fest hosted by Sons of Norway at Salida Public Library. I’ll have a table of books and art for this event.
10/1/2016 Viking Nations signing at Barnes and Noble Weberstown in Stockton.
11/5/2016 Speaking during a poster session at the California Librarian’s Association conference in Sacramento where I’ll talk about being a specialist doing public events at libraries.
5/2017 Member of a CARA panel on being a medievalist outside of academia during the International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo. Yes I’m discussing the coloring book project and will have handouts. Bring your Crayolas.

It is gets too much more I’ll need to set up Calendar pages on my social media stuff… exciting times though!

I’m headed back to the desk to get more finished on my ode to the visual beauty of the early medieval Scandinavian world. Then more admin in case I get called in to substitute teach tomorrow. I’m actually updating my Redbubble page today as well [as I’ve been neglecting uploading things regularly with all the coloring book work I’ve been producing].

Progress on coloring book motifs can be found on my Instagram feed.
