I grew up watching movies and reading books about fantasy and science-fiction and that clearly shows in the choice of subject in my personal work. Last year I started a project about recreating gods and heroes from the Finnish epic Kalevala and I created images for Louhi, Louhi’s Daughter and Ahti. While my original aim was to keep the project nice and tight, I decided to expand it to include gods and heroes from all Scandinavian mythology and folk lore. I was greatly inspired by the Hollywood movies based around the god of thunder, Thor, and he was naturally my first character to add to my project. The suit I made myself using image captures from the actual movies for inspiration.
