This is me, Rán. I work as an author, artist and illustrator.
I was born in Norway, and raised in Iceland.
My name rhymes with brown and it is borrowed from the goddess of the sea in Norse mythology. In daily spoken Icelandic though it is more commonly used for robbery.
But I am not a thief! I don’t steal things. I create them.
Bi-weekly or so, I draw a newsletter.
I call it The Rán Flygenring Show.
