Historical Reconstructions Part VI

Jean-Claude Golvin

I’m intrigued to know what these images look like in person.  How rich the colors would look under glass on a wall.  Maybe one day I’ll get to place one of these originals in such a frame in my house.

Historical Reconstructions Part III

Jean-Claude Golvin

I’m captivated by the way that these images can conjure stories in my mind of the lives our ancestors lived.  The inventiveness and tenacity they had to build these homes and works of art in an age prior to industrial means.  It is always a good reminder to keep imagining and building upon that lineage.

Historical Warrior Illustration Series Part XXVI

Milek Jakubiec

At times I question why I would bother gathering these images when they are already displayed on sites like deviantart and artstation. And then I remember it’s about the focus of these postings and the joy of discovering these artists works, which in the case of Milek Jakubiec is responsible for much of the concept art for my favorite game series Total War.  Check out his other artistic styles at the links above and enjoy.

The Last Kingdom

Second Season

First Season

I do hope they renew this series for another season.  With Netflix joining the team I hope they can increase the scale and scope of the show. While the first two seasons lacked some of the dark grimy conditions that I wished to see portrayed from Bernard Cornwell’s Saxon Stories, I’m still a junkie for medieval historical fiction dramas. It would be great if they filmed the whole series, but with ten plus books and counting that’s unlikely.

Vikings Season 5

Travis Fimmel’s portrayal of  Ragnar Lothbrok will be missed in this coming season of the Vikings.  Luckily this series just keeps getting better ever year. I’m really excited about what is to unfold in this epic historical fiction.
