Illustration Friday… Carry

Carry me, on the belly of a sloth- slow and slow and slow.

Move me,

through the never ending jungle- on and on and on.

Feed me,

with the fruit of joy- more and more and more.

Gimli and the iPhone

It's the next in the series! The council of Elrond is one of my favorite chapters in the books and I could not pass up the opportunity to illustrate an image in the series from such a pivotal and cinematic moment. Gimli, in his great impatience is too eager to destroy the thing that is causing the whispers of war throughout Middle Earth.

This iPhone is too powerful to be destroyed by a simple passionate movement of a short-tempered dwarf.

This is a 9×12 inch watercolor painting on multi-purpose illustration paper. Stylistically different from many of my detailed and highly rendered paintings this watercolor series will capture an emotion of gritty reality.

 

Prints are available here.

Come back in a while to see how Gollum feels about this great power.

Frodo and the iPhone

Part of a new series I am working on. It consists of combining to of my favorite loves- Lord of the Rings and Apple products. The main focus in these will be replacing the 'one ring' with Apple's iPhone 4 and placing it in situations that we have seen in the cinematic representation of Tolkien's beloved books. My hope is that by juxtaposing these iconic images together that the viewers will be intrigued by their relationship.
