A Shortcut to Mushrooms – Charcoal
‘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.
Happy Tolkien reading day to you all!
With this being the first year that I’ve been aware in advance of Tolkien reading day, not only do I get to read, but I also have the time to get a bit of writing done and share fully in the excitement and joy of the day!
For this years theme of Home and Hearth: the many ways of being a Hobbit there are countless different options of reading that fit in to the theme; for me I have chosen to spend my reading time in the prologue of The Fellowship of the Ring; Concerning Hobbits.
