After studying Danish literature and Art History for a while, he quit university for a freelance artist life. His early years as a full-time illustrator meant drawing anything for money. Soon, he weeded out the assignments that weren’t historical (because hey, Viking stuff is quite close to fantasy!), and after a while, all he did was fantasy art. When he finally got his first assignment for Dungeons and Dragons, it was 20 years since that Christmas when the goal was set. He struck out on a journey, stubbornly and, at times, ignorant of the realities of life, and two decades of traveling has finally brought him home.
