A few days ago, JK Rowling announced a whole new range of magic schools that exist in the Harry Potter universe. Which is good timing, because Blizzard artist Even Amundsen—whose work we’ve featured here before—has for a while now had an idea for a new school of his own.

It’s called Vølurheim, and it’s a school for old-timey Nordic myth and magic. For the past year or so Amundsen has been creating characters to run this school, and I thought given Rowling’s announcement (and the quality of the pics) that this was the perfect time to showcase them.
