I'm not really an illustrator like, say, Ben Hatke (who is so good he could only be constantly tempted to the sin of pride) or David John (whose "photo" icon of, I think, St. John, is my single favorite thing here.) but I'm posting these anyway. I've always had a special feeling for the characters Eowyn in "The Lord of the Rings," and have tried to do her twice. One is a pencil drawing and one is done entirely in Adobe Illustrator. I have a lot of affection for them but they're really just respectable failures. The leaves picture is a sketch prep for a watercolor of part of Niggle's tree that I'm afraid to start. (I think the short story "Leaf by Niggle" by Tolkien is probably the most important literary experience for a Catholic artist. If you haven't read it, I urge you to do so. "It's a gift!") The cutout piece, about three inches wide is Ulmo from the "Silmarillion." It's really the sort of thing I do now.
