Two recent drawings relating to ancient and contemporary Orcadia.

These were inspired by the runes at Maes Howe, said to have been carved by a party of Norse warriors sheltering from a terrible blizzard, Christmas, 1153. The graffiti mixes their own names with the names of women they wish to fuck and brags about their steersmanship.
