A LOT TO BE THANKFUL FOR…
There is somebody without whom this site would not exist. (Naturally, not counting my parents, my big brother, my school chums and all those drivers who didn’t run over the skinny kid on the wobbly bike…) This site is the work of one person, Dominique Javet, who has turned his considerable skills and no less considerable enthusiasm to making something we can both be proud of.
Thanks to Jane Johnson, who commissioned my first Tolkien illustration.
Thanks to David, Chris, Barry and everyone at HarperCollins for making me (usually) meet deadlines.
Thanks to Alison, Val, Tamlyn and Alan, from Arena, for the confidence and for cracking the whip.
Thanks to Gerry and the Companie of Saynt George, for being the best of company and for the time travelling.
Thanks to Alan Lee, for the inspiration and the friendship.
Thanks to Peter, Fran, Richard, Tania and all the amazingly talented people in New Zealand who invited me along for the journey.
Thanks to Robert, Reiner and the crew at Kosmos and TM Spiele for the fun and games.
Thanks to all the authors, past and present, without whom my pallette would be very narrow indeed.
Thanks to Claude and Etienne, who were influential and beneficial figures for a would-be and aspiring illustrator.
Thanks to all the people who have supplied material and help, they are too numerous to mention.
And lastly, my eternal thanks to my wife and fellow illustrator Fataneh, and our son Dana, for putting up with me and pushing me forward.
