These are the illustrations for a poster series I did as my final project for a class I took this summer. The idea was to show how different styles can affect a viewer’s perception of an image.

An illustration to accompany a larger design assignment (an e-mail newsletter/ad for an online art portfolio host and print shop). Also an excuse to draw some adventurers and a great big ham, both of which are always a plus.

I don’t do a lot of fan art, as a rule, but I’ve been thinking about The Silmarillion lately, and seeing as it’s Race of Men Week on Tumblr (celebrating the humans of Middle Earth), I thought I’d draw one of my favourite characters from the book. She suffers from the same problem as a lot of neat things in the Silmarillion, namely only really getting a quick summary of her story instead of the full novel she deserves, but that doesn’t diminish how much I like her.
Haleth, daughter of Haldad is, and let me be clear here, completely ace in every respect. She was the leader of one of the tribes of the Edain, the first humans in Middle Earth, after holding off a bunch of orcs in a siege that saw her father and brother both die in quick succession. After the battle, she turns down an alliance with the local elf kingdom and leads her people to go live like forest-loving lumberjack vikings in the woods (which involves a long journey in which lots of them die, but everyone sticks with her because she is, as mentioned, the best).

Illustrations from an artist’s book project I worked on this past winter. The book is centred around the idea of Yggdrasil, the ‘world-tree’ of Norse cosmology; it reveals the various worlds as it unfolds in a complex spiral of flaps and branching pages.
Ultimately, the physical product is unwieldy and suffered from a week of being on display, so here are the images from free from the hazards of experimental book design.

What I’m Up To

It seems a bunch of you have started following me in the past (relatively) little while, so I thought I’d say hi and let you know what’s going on.

I’m currently working on a bigger project that’s cutting into my ‘drawing cute wizards’ time, so things are likely to be quiet in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, feel free to have a look at my reference/inspiration blog, which is more regularly updated and active, or follow me on twitter, if you’re a twitter-er. I sometimes write things there.
