New Look {artymissk.com}

Hello my friends, I hope you’re having a prosperous start to 2022!

I know the Friday’s are normally post days but this is an extra little one as I finally made the decision to change my domain and blog name.

My former name of kareynolds .net has been a dear friend since way back in March 2013 (I can’t believe that’s basically a decade!) but I decided that artymissk.com was a good step forward in my blogging life as it relates to my Twitter/DeviantArt/Tumblr/YouTube accounts. It was so easy to do and yet I’ve been putting it off for ages.

What do you think of the new name and artwork?

I hope you continue to follow my blog and join me on my artistic and photographic journey.

The Hobbit

On this day in 1937, J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit was published. The first line of chapter 1 is ‘In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit.’ this particular book has always ben a favourite of mine and I read it more or less once a year. The copy I have was illustrated by Michael Hague and I found it in a little coffee/bookshop near LochNess in Scotland.

Placed onto the page is a coaster I made of a cartoonised door to BagEnd.

Also seeing as tomorrow is September 22nd – which is Bilbo Baggins’ Birthday I dug out my very well read copy of The Hobbit, think I might read it again…safe to say this is the book that ignited my love of dragons! Michael Hauge’s illustrations are beautiful and lead me to the works of John Howe and Alan Lee.

Thanks for visiting, have a safe adventure.
