Horror Valentines!

Sometimes hearts and flowers will only do if the heart’s cursed and the flowers are omnivorous. If you wish to tell someone you love them horribly then let one of these dear little monsters be your messenger.

Greeting cards, as well as diverse ephemera for your haunted house, available here: http://www.redbubble.com/people/bohemianweasel/collections/486329-valentine-horror


‘To Signify My Claim’

The Gentleman With the Thistle-down Hair, from Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke.
Pencils and digital colouring, 21×29 cms

“I should take something of the lady’s to signify my claim upon her.”

What he takes is a finger. Though just a little one.

Shire Bridge

Prints and things available here.

I painted the original a couple of years ago: an idea of Frodo and Sam enjoying one of the Shire’s little rivers’, perhaps at the beginning of their journey when everything still felt enjoyably adventurous in a very safe way. I liked the parallel between these two by the river, and the earlier pair of Sméagol and Déagol, and how their river trip ended. And both of those pairs of friends are bound by the same ring.

This is a re-working made for the Tolkien art show ‘Evil in the Shining Light’, Bank Street Arts, Sheffield, through September 2015.
Original was acrylics on paper, 10 x 7.5″ Frame element by Stephen Clulow on Flickr.

A re-working of an earlier painting (The Hidden Valley), this new version has Frodo being carried to Rivendell by the Elves after falling at the Ford.  Made for the Tolkien art exhibition: ‘Evil in the Shining Light’, Bank Street Arts, Sheffield, through September 2015.
Original was acrylics on paper 11.5 x 8″, added frame element by Stephen Clulow on Flickr.

And a close-up of Frodo’s rescue party.
At the front are two pairs of Elf riders, followed by an Elven cart bearing the fallen Frodo; behind him is Strider on foot; then Glorfindel (not Arwen :p) on his white horse; behind him near the bridge are the three Hobbits on foot; then there are two Elves on foot on the bridge, and two more on horseback at the end:
