something visual

I felt the need today to do something visual, so I mood boarded Viking helmets and weapons and Viking longboats see below:

My research so far has indicated to me that there is no evidence that Viking helmets were horned, this conflicts with popular culture, see below:

I have then produced some simple vector pictures, see below:
