I was contacted by someone in my area asking for a donation to the Viking Backers club and I thought, "how strange, my high school mascot is the Viking!" And it turns out that indeed this someone was from my old high school!

So I made a Viking theme plate in my school colors, black and gold, to donate to their event.

Enjoy!

That's really lovely work! I wish I knew how to do that! I love the shimmering effect on the gold!

Incidentally, the high school from which I graduated also had a Viking as their mascot, but our colors were like maroon or something, I don't even remember.
