NEW ARTWORK! The banshee (bean sí in Irish) is a ghoulish figure from ancient Celtic fairy lore. She is said to appear as an omen of death, wailing and crying outside of the home for a loved one in the house who is soon to die. She is a pretty terrifying figure. Legend has it that the banshee only wails for five different Irish families. I am a descendant of one of those five families, so I felt compelled to portray this wailing wench in all her spooky glory!

This is my take on the legendary Robin Hood! The Prince of Thieves done up in a Neo-Celtic style! I like the image of Robin as a Native Briton (either Saxon or Celtic) fighting the invading Normans. I used the leaves on him not just to represent camouflage in the forest, but also to draw connections to the Greenman whose archetype has often been associated with Robin.

The "Dragon Slayer" design is in a Norse style depicting a dragon with a sword running through it. The runes on the dragon's body spell out "DRAGON SLAYER."

MY LATEST WORK!

Vikings and Norse warriors would wear the Mjölnir (Thor's Hammer) amulet to invoke the thunder god's strength and protection. In Norse mythology, Odin, the Allfather, is the father of Thor. This depiction of Mjölnir is adorned with Odin and Thor locked in battle. What's causing this domestic dispute? I'm not sure. Maybe Thor drank Odin's last bottle of mead!

Never give up. Never go down. Bruised, bloodied, but never beaten! You're always ready for one more round! This unique design emulates strength and toughness in a vintage style.
