Dwalin print signed by Graham McTavish himself :D

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. ^_^

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.

Gil-Galad was an Elven King..

Gil-Galad signed by Mark Ferguson

Signed Gil-Galad

 

To Soni,
You are a great talent!
Thank you, Mark Ferguson
(Gil Galad)

That’s what the gentleman himself wrote on the first image, which is a print of a rather hasty sketch! *Insert vast amount of squee here*

A magnificent friend (to whom I now probably owe a kidney) printed it out and took it with her to the Calgary Expo where the HIGH KING OF THE ELVES signed it. ^_^

The image below that, however, is the finished version – with extra shiny and special.
