‘Hobbits have a passion for mushrooms, surpassing even the greediest likings of Big People’
The Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the Ring, Book I, Chapter V – A Conspiracy Unmasked
I recently did something that has been quite a long held ambition of mine; I depicted myself as a Hobbit. This was quite an off the cuff project, planned, sketched and completed within a few hours for a competition that I entered.
I love Hobbits; I also love mushrooms; and Hobbits love mushrooms so this tripartite arrangement birthed a new artwork.
The opening chapters of the Fellowship of the Ring are some of my favourites from the entire legendarium; one really does get drawn in to the Hobbit culture and the journey from the Shire to Bree is packed full of literary gems.
Anyway, more art to come soon and I’ll be writing a post about using reference which this piece will be the main subject of –
