NORSE MYTHOLOGY ZINE
An illustration collaboration project between 8 international artists.
The project began as an independent backburner project, inspired by a friend's self-published artbook. The artists were recruited through social media, and we began brainstorming.
Example pages. Work of Henri Eskelinen, Armin Solderer and Vimes shown.
The project's theme went through many phases, from a brawl comic between Pantheons to gods surviving in a modern day environment.
In the end we chose depicting gods and creatures of norse mythology.
