The Thirteenth Shelf

Artist Showcase: Johan Egerkrans

Author of the gorgeous guide Norse Gods, Swedish illustrator Johan Egerkrans brings the giants (both literal and figurative) of Norse mythology to life. Eschewing realistic depictions of attractive muscled gods and beautiful goddesses, many of Egerkrans’ portraits recall medieval woodblocks, and his deeply saturated action scenes use thick linework and intense colors to convey the passions, destruction and power of the gods.
