Brisingamen

 

An old Christian propaganda story about Freyja’s famed necklace Brísingamen:

Sörla þáttr is a short story in the later and extended version of the Saga of Olaf Tryggvason[4] in the manuscript of the Flateyjarbók, which is written and compiled by two Christian priests, Jon Thordson and Magnus Thorhalson, in late 14th century.[5] In the end of the story, the arrival ofChristianity dissolves the old curse that traditionally was to endure until Ragnarök.

“Freyja was a human in Asia and was the favorite concubine of Odin, King of Asialand. When this woman wanted to buy a golden necklace (no name given) forged by four dwarves (named Dvalinn, Alfrik, Berling, and Grer), she offered them gold and silver but they replied that they would only sell it to her if she would lie a night by each of them. She came home afterward with the necklace and kept silent as if nothing happened. But a man called Loki somehow knew it, and came to tell Odin. King Odin commanded Loki to steal the necklace, so Loki turned into a fly to sneak into Freyja’s bower and stole it. When Freyja found her necklace missing, she came to ask king Odin. In exchange for it, Odin ordered her to make two kings, 
each served by twenty kings, fight forever unless some christened men so brave would dare to enter the battle and slay them. She said yes, and got that necklace back. Under the spell, king Högni and king Heðinn battled for one hundred and forty-three years, as soon as they fell down they had to stand up again and fight on. But in the end, the Christian lord Olaf Tryggvason, who has a great fate and luck, arrived with his christened men, and whoever slain by a Christian would stay dead. Thus the pagan curse was finally dissolved by the arrival of Christianity. After that, the noble man, king Olaf, went back to his realm.”

Foreman by day, idiot by night. I was browsing through some classic vintage computer ads, and got inspired by those “..by day, …by night” -video game ads. Check it out at gadgets.boingboing.net

Nothing against foremen nor “kalsarikännit”(underwear drinking), more of self-irony than insulting.

Stalker

Yeah, you know, those grumpy stalkers which haunt every single apartment building complaining about everything. It’s not rare to see a hand cracking window blinds : P

I decided not to count this as a sketch since it’s relatively finished piece compared with rest of the stuff here. Turned out to look quite a different than the original draft.
