Tolkientober Days 12-14

Nearly half way with Tolkientober already!

Day 12: Magic – I really love quote art! Its so simple to do but so effective and takes almost no time at all when created using CAD.

Day 13: History – So day thirteen is history. I made my own version of the Arkenstone from The Hobbit movies, by finding a fairly biggish smooth stone and painted with a whole pot of glitter nail varnish!

Day 14: – Quest, so I did a quick pen and pencil drawing of Thorin’s map from The Hobbit.

Tolkientober Days 10-11

Days nine through eleven for Tolkientober 2021

Day 9 was a rest day! It feels a lot less challenging with the included rest days.

Day 10: Healing – ‘The hands of the King are the hands of a healer and so shall the rightful King be known’ is a quote from Return of the King (Book) and is about Aragorn

Day 11: Fellowship – I decided to recreate the simple but iconic image of the fellowship of the ring leaving Rivendell. and beginning the journey across Middle Earth.

Tolkientober Days 6-8

Here’s a few more days for Tolkientober.

Day 6: Food – As food was the theme I thought I create the unexpectedly small hobbit tea party, unsurprisingly this took longer than expected.

Day 7: Songs – Just a quick little calligraphy art. The Road Goes Ever On, is a walking song by J.R.R. Tolkien, fictionally written by Bilbo Baggins; lyrics from The Hobbit are –

Roads go ever ever on,
Over rock and under tree,
By caves where never sun has shone,
By streams that never find the sea;
Over snow by winter sown,
And through the merry flowers of June,
Over grass and over stone,
And under mountains in the moon.

Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star,
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.

It’s one of my favourites. I’ve made quite a lot of LotR/Hobbit art over the last year, which is cool when you think that the Fellowship of the Ring is twenty this year.

Day 8: Swords A quick pen and pencil of Bilbo’s (and then Frodo’s) sword Sting.

The Dormouse

DSC00136

Celebrating the 150th birthday of Alice, these quirky wall hangings make a great gift for the curious minded.

These Wall Mounted Animal Heads are handmade, using various felts and british standard padding. As the name suggests these Feltsidermy are created using mainly felt. Each head is filled with wadding and is backed onto a foam disc giving each head a nice backing board and will hang neatly onto the wall with a small loop on the back.

The Dormouse is complete with hand made artistic gold finish wire glasses.

All materials used are vegan friendly and kind to the environment, the felt itself is made from recycled plastic bottles.
