There were so many possible ways to have taken this Illustration Friday topic. To keep up with the Mythic Monday theme here I went with a corpulent troublemaker from Celtic Mythology: Conán mac Morna. Conán was also known as "the bald". He was a member of the Fianna. Headed by Fionn mac Cumhail (AKA: Finn mac Cool), the Fianna has been compared to the knights of the round table. It has even been speculated that the Aurthurian legend may have been based on the stories of the Fianna. Though Conán mac Morna was known to be hot-headed, he was also known to be very brave and loyal to Fionn. Check out more here:

IF/MM: Under the Sea

Well once again it’s time for MYTHIC MONDAY! (on Tuesday)
The Illustration Friday topic is “Under the Sea” and so, I waded back into some familiar territory: Norse Mythology to take on one of the nine daughters of Ægir.
Ægir is a giant (or Jotun) and he rules all that exists beneath the waves. Hence his nine daughters are names for types of waves.
His Billow Maidens are:
Himinglæva - That through which one can see the heaven.
Dúfa - The Pitching One.
Blóðughadda - Bloody-Hair.
Uðr - Frothing Wave.
Hrönn - Welling Wave.
Bylgja - Billow.
Dröfn - Foam-Fleck.
Kólga - Poetical term for Wave. "The Cool One"
and here we have Hefring - Riser.
Ægir is known to throw huge parties for the Norse gods. His daughters would help him brew ale in a gigantic pot in preparation for these parties. So I imagine Hefring would be kind of like a giant Paris Hilton.
