Troll update!


My entry to the NorwayYourway contest won!  I'll be the UK representative travelling with 'creatives' from France, Italy, Germany and Russsia through mid-August.  It is going to be a great opportunity to explore an amazing land and report back with lots of sketches.  Many thanks to everyone who voted for me.

Like OMFG...WTF? ROFL. STMYGTNTIS.
The last one means 'So This Means Your Going To Norway Then I Suppose'. What kind of free swag do you get?...the website is pretty unspecific. It just says, "A bag with all the latest gear in it".
