huginn muninn

10

I am called Glad-of-War, Grim, Raider, and Third. I am One-Eyed. I am also called Highest, and True-Guesser. I am Grimnir, and Hooded One. I am All-Father, Gondlir, Wand-Bearer. I have as many names as there are winds, as many titles as there are ways to die. My ravens are Huginn and Muninn, Thought and Memory; my wolves are Freki and Geri; my horse is the gallows. I am.. Odin!

“Hey,“ said Shadow. "Huginn or Muninn, or whoever you are.”
The bird turned, head tipped, suspiciously, on one side, and it stared at him with bright eyes.
“Say ‘Nevermore,’” said Shadow.
“Fuck you,” said the raven.”

I finished reading American Gods last night and wow, what a book.

Huginn og Muninn.
Drawing done in Oct. while learning to use Adobe Illustrator, but just revisited it to make the frames, w/ influence from Jim Fitzpatrick’s adapted Celtic sagas art (“Book of Conquests”) but w/ more Scandinavian direction via refs. I got from Nationalmuseet at København.
(Edit: Slightly revised knotwork at Danish friend’s wonderful suggestion to more authentically have them go over/under/over/etc each other)
