Viking Food

I worked in the story department on "How to Train Your Dragon" but got asked at 1 stage of production to come up with some ideas for what the Vikings would eat around the campfire. I'm proud to say that my Chicken Carcass made it to the final film! I know every one raves about the flying scenes and the Hiccup/Toothless relationship but I'm pretty sure that the movie is at 98% positive reviews due to the shot of Gobber eating this delicious looking bird!

Hahaha! Your right - but it would have been 100% if they used the dismembered snout and trotter skewer or the strange looking unborn chicken fetus skewer (I think I ate one of those in Malaysia once!) you have there as well!!

Great drawings!

It's great to see you posting again. I found your blog off the Conga blog, and I've been in love with the work ever since. You're incredible with characters, and I liked the tutorials as well. I just saw How To Train Your Dragon, and it was excellent. I can't wait to see more work. Take care!
