In August 2017 I had my first solo gallery show at Kaktus Gallery in my hometown of Akureyri, Iceland. On this page are the pieces I displayed at that show. The title of the show could best be translated into english as "The Villains' Lair" And it consisted of ten Ink and pen drawings of classic villains from film history.

The Land Wights, These are the four guardians of Iceland, the Eagle in the North, Dragon in the East, Mountain Giant in the South, and the Bull in the West.
