• The Killing of the Trees

    The Killing of the Trees Illustration done for Morgoth's Ring. My first sketch showed Morgoth absolutley slamming his spear into one of the Trees, but it was judged a bit... energetic. I fell back on Morgoth contemplating Ungoliantë avidly sucking up the sap of the wounded Trees.

  • The Plains of Rohan

    Last summer, I stumbled a fabulous book on figurative mortuary statues in Azerbaijan. I was already aware of the lions in Ispahan and south, but these were totally new. They are principally of rams and horses, but the book includes stone carvings unlike any I've ever seen anywhere. The book is in Russian, so I've not been able to read much of it, but it inspired me to do slightly more Celtic...

  • Smaug Destroys Lake Town

    Originally done for the 1988 Tolkien Calendar, I was of course overjoyed and flattered to see it make not only the chosen month, but the cover of the English edition. I remember spending ages trying to get Smaug the way i wanted him, and nothing seemed to work. Finally, I put that little kink in his tail that broke the smooth line of it, and the whole thing fell into place. The Tolkien...

  • Peeling Paint

    Peeling Paint Approximately 35 x 50 cm. Pencil on cardboard, 1979 Why we even DID this kind of thing in art school, I cannot fathom. Weeks spent twirling ultra-sharpened pencils, slowly working like a penitant from 9H to 8B. Ah, life as a student...

  • The Last Dragon

    The Last Dragon 1983 A painting done for the first gallery show I had in Lausanne. Unfortunately, the original disappeared courtesy of some rather frankly dishonest gallery owners in Annapolis, Maryland. Part of a show I had at the Pendragon Gallery, it evaporated at the same time as the owners when their gallery moved to a new location and then went bankrupt. I lost a LOT of artwork to...

  • Memory & Dream

    Memory & Dream Dimensions: 99.0 x 31.8 cm The longest wraparound cover ever done... by me anyway. (It's a lo-ong way around a book from the end of one flap to another.) The brief was also rather unusual: a crowd of naked tranlucent red people dancing in a wood. And of course, the editor never sent a copy. Goodness, what can the story be about? Memory & Dream
