What is this blog?

I am a PhD student at York´s Centre for Medieval Studies, specializing in Middle English and Old Norse-Icelandic romance. I take influence from medieval literature to create modern illustrations in pen and ink, as well as linocut.

Originally starting as purely an illustration portfolio, this blog now incorporates musings and anecdotes from my PhD experience. Mostly though, it´s still all about the monsters.
