The Apprentice and the Dragon

The Apprentice and the Dragon

This is David Flack. I met him at the smitty and museum in Handen today. He is a student at the Hantverksakademin. An upper secondary trade school. David is a future Blacksmith/Artist. He has a keen interest for the Viking Era and the Middle Ages, and will often travel around Sweden to Medieval markets. David has been an apprentice with Martin Ahlsén for three years now, and has one year left before he can call himself a journeyman. He told me that he designs knifes, but he hasn't started selling anything yet.On his free time he is a DJ, and arranges a lot of drug free rave parties in forests around Stockholm.

Jeg se på svensk TV4 om "traedgård" (just nu) om en flott dam fra Hanninge...... og et sykehjem som får flott uteområde.
Vakkert!
Men det vet jeg jo allerede etter å ha sett dine foto.

Very nice portrait with a searching gaze. He looks like he could fit right in with the people in my Monday post.

I wonder if he knows that small dragon is sneaking up behind him.

A very interesting man Steffe, he has a sort of 'viking' look about him, nice friend he has there!

He knows everything about the dragon, which you can read more about in today's post.

Very interesting. He must make a living with his rave parties. In this country a "rave" party means at least one drug, Ecstasy.

I'm showing my geekiness here, but I want that little dragon! And Martin's gate is absolutely awesome!

He sells a lot of stuff at different markets. I'm sure you could buy a little dragon if you email him. Say hello from me! Here is his email:
