Road Goes Ever On....


Greetings!

And now for something completely different ;-)

This is a possible for a "Tolkien Weekend" poster commemorating the 70th anniversary of the publication of "The Hobbit".

I love it! What a great motto! Also love the colors.

Niffty!
my only 2 crits would be to make the type and the types "shadow" a little closer together and Bilbo's legs look a little green...

I also wonder how it would look if you curved the type to follow the door... maybe just slightly?

I'm always impressed with your color choices - very nice.

I wonder what it would look like with a decorative ampersand instead of "and"? Some kind of a script or something that would bring the two lines together?

Jef Murray said...

Thanks, all. The text is actually temporary...final text to be worked out. So, I know, Ted, that the shadow on the first line text is wrong, but didn't bother to clean up, knowing it would change. Also, Abigail, ampersand is a great suggestion...if we stick with this text, I'll definitely consider it.

Jef Murray said...

Oh, Ted, good comment on curving text as well...also a thing to play with once text is finalized. Thanks!

Round Hobbit doors make great design elements!

Jef--this looks like something Tolkien himself would have painted! I have a book of his illustrations and you've captured the same style.

John,

Thanks! I guess some of the "look and feel" of his world is starting to rub off a bit. I'm very complimented!
