Art giveaway!

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. Prize draw art contest for the White Ship

Sam & Frodo Artwork for The Hillywood Show!

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!

LotR & Hobbit sketches 2013-14

All of these are sketch-card size: 2.5×3.5″.

These portraits are all framed by elements from their own stories: Éowyn by simbelmynë flowers, Boromir by the Tree of Gondor, Gandalf by pipe smoke; Thranduil by the carved stone trees of his halls, and Bard by Lake-town and its reflection.

Moments from the Hobbit:

And scenes from Lord of the Rings:

And a few portraits from both.

Classic Mythology II: Helios & Selene

Helios, god of the sun, and Selene, goddess of the moon from the pantheon of Ancient Greece.

Of my 5 artist returns for this set, these are the only 2 finished so far. The others may have to wait until September or after.

Hobbit & LotR artwork for Calgary Expo 2014

These preposterously talented gentlemen all appeared at the recent Calgary Expo, and my friend (to whom I owe eternal thanks/ a statue / a kidney) asked if I might like some autographs? The answer was vehement and ebullient and had lots of excited swearing.

So I hastily made these in the hope they wouldn’t mind leaving some sort of mark upon them (an autograph, jammy fingerprints, anything) and as a microcosmically small recognition of their super-ness. ^_^

Update: the Dwarf pictures were finished too late to be autographed, but the gentlemen were given prints of them, and lovely Mark Hadlow (Dori) was even kind enough to give me a special autograph as a ‘thank you’. :D The Hobbits and Elves were signed however, included below are all the scans I have so far.
