Ah, so you wish to know more? One could hardly blame you. Here, then, are some of the essentials:

 

NAME

“Ingvard the Terrible.” Also acceptable are “Lord Ingvard”, “Ingvard the Handsome” and, in some Latin American countries, “Los Pantelones Fuerte” (long story, don’t ask).

 

I CURRENTLY LIVE IN:

Pretty much any village I feel like. As long as there’s gold to be plundered and beautiful womenfolk to expropriate. And a Chili’s.

 

I CONSIDER MY HOMETOWN TO BE:

The Great Northern Realms of Scandinavia. Although I’ve been known to summer in Long Beach.

 

MY FAVORITE PIXAR CHARACTER IS:

For his brute strength, unwillingness to adhere to oppressive societal edicts, and his powerful chin: Mr. Incredible/Bob Parr. For his unrelenting bravery, impressive body armor, and his powerful chin: Buzz Lightyear. And for his sheer hairiness and questionable hygiene habits: James P. “Sully” Sullivan.

 

WHO/WHAT INSPIRES YOU?

Thor, Cnut the Great, Sweyn Forkbeard, Oprah. Yes, Oprah. Look, if you want lessons on conquering large swaths of other people’s domains and ruling over it with an iron fist, she’s your girl.

 

Artistically? Oh, uh, Berke Breathed, Bill Waterson, Gary Kelly, Ed Fotheringham, Derek Yaniger, Michael Slack, Ben Caldwell, Jon Flaming, Bill Brown, classic Disney. Pixar inspires me not just visually, but in terms of developing great characters and compelling storylines. They also have a knack for dominating the box office, and domination, as you may have surmised, is a particular favorite pastime of mine.
