Children of Loki in Collaboration with Caitlin Like

Thank you for visiting my table at Rose City Comic Con!
At the con, we released our first print of Children of Loki, a book about a viking family destined to battle against the offspring of Norse god Loki.

Let me tell you a behind-the-scene story. Caitlin Like is my fellow apprentice at Periscope Studio, and at the Stumptown Comic Festival in 2013 we both tabled together at its Artist Alley. There, I was asked to do a few commission pieces for good friends. Their prompts were “a beautiful viking,” a beautifu viking’s brother,” and “a beautiful viking’s father.” Thus, an entire family of viking was instantly created on site! Caitlin and I had so much fun chatting about this family, we decided to do an actual comic about them.

In Children of Loki, I told a story about the father and his mysterious companion, and Caitlin’s story rotates around his two sons (the original “beautiful viking” and his brother). We didn’t really talk about details to each other, but somehow we both had a pretty unified idea of what the story should be. I absolutely love it when a simple idea on the whim of the moment turns into something incredible, tangible, and fun! Many thanks to kind friends at Crab Tank, Caitlin, and my husband (my best proofreader) for helping this comic come true. I’m setting up a place so I can sell this comic on web.
