More sketches from Norway. From my new drawing game called "Like/Don't Like"

One thing that strikes me wherever I go is how much we all have in common. For instance you can go anywhere in the world and people get pissed off when you draw them.
What Norwegians Look Like:
This is the view from the highest hut called "Fannaraken". It's clouded in almost all of the time and it looks like Mordor. It consists of 4 wooden buildings without electricity or running water and all supplies have to be heliocoptered in.
I set off a smoke alarm trying to dry some clothes by the propane heater because it rained all day while we were climbing up there and everything we had was soaking wet, people ran around and freaked out and I was very popular the rest of the night.
For the rest of the trip if we mentioned we went here we got royal treatment from all Norwegians. So if you ever go to Norway just tell people casually you stayed at Fannaraken and watch them fall all over themselves .
One of the best things we did in Norway was to go on a 3 day hike hut to hut, the final stop was at the highest hut in Norway at 6000 feet or so. This is a view of a glacier and some sheep we saw on the way up to the hut.

Here's the first thing I saw. I was only in Norway for about 2 hours when this happened. The Akershus Castle is the one of the biggest Landmarks/ Tourist Attractions in the city, the Cruiseships pull right up in front of it and spill out 2 or 3 thousand tourists every day. I guess underneath the bridge to the East Gate to the Castle is where the hookers hang out and probably have hung out for centuries so... no need for them to relocate. It stayed light until about 11:30 at night when i got there so the after hour shenannigins are prettly well lit. In case the drawing is somehwat vague the prostitute is definitely shaking jiz off her arm and laughing about it as the guy walks away and hikes up his trousers. The person walking on the bridge is a uniformed soldier patrolling the castle.
Just returned from a 3 and 1/2 week trip to Norway. Here's a photo I took that looks like a jigsaw puzzle from the 70's. I don't know the people but they were obviously posing and waiting for someone with a camera to come along so I obliged them. Really saw a lot on this trip, I did a fair amount of drawing so I'll be posting them pretty regularly (Chris) over the next week or so as i scan them.
