Tolkien's Desk by 89ravenclaw Tolkien's Desk by 89ravenclaw
PRINT NOW AVAILABLE AT MY INPRINT STORE: www.inprnt.com/gallery/89raven…

Earlier this month, I was commissioned to complete this piece as course art for Dr. Verlyn Flieger's upcoming Tolkien class through the Mythgard Institute.

The idea behind the piece for to show Tolkien in the progress of writing his famous works, while highlighting the course material (The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings).

I finished this painting awhile ago, but since the course information is now online, I feel safe posting it.

Progression on Tumblr: 89ravenclaw.tumblr.com/post/34…

UPDATE: Whaaaat?! A DD? That's never happened before (took me awhile to figure out why I suddenly had 600+ feedback messages waiting for me). Thanks everone who liked this.
