I’m stuck here in Portugal so my chances of going to exciting conventions in North America are teeny. However, I do have the nicest friends *in the world* and was just sent a scan of this wonderful thing! Fresh from the Calgary Expo where my goddess of a friend asked the man himself to sign this for me, and apparently he was lovely (and awfully handsome) in person. ^_^

As a ‘thank you’ for receiving over 500 likes on my Facebook page, I’m giving away this drawing of the White Ship from Return of the King. :) It was drawn for the credits sequence of The Hillywood Show® LotR parody (which is wonderful, you can watch it here). If you’d like this ship to sail to YOU, then just like my Facebook art page (if you haven’t already) and leave a comment below the picture there. I’ll put all the names into a hat and the winning name will be randomly plucked by giant eagles (or me) on Christmas day! Open to everyone around the world, registered postage will be included free.

The talented parody sisters Hannah and Hilly Hindi asked if I could provide some sketches for the end credits of their LotR parody (to mimic the credits of Return of the King), but they specifically asked for Sam and Frodo ‘with all the feels’.
Here’s what I drew for them. (All 10.5×7″, graphite on watercolour paper)
And here’s their lovely video – make sure to have tissues handy!
