Thanks, got the book for £6.99! Also a Arthur Rackham for 2.99 so very pleased to have them.

Wow, the Rackham book is a find Carole. I love his trees, they almost breathe…..

Thanks Fiona. Yes a good visit that day, love his drawings, not quite as scary as the Tolkien illustrations:)

Hang on Studio Wall

I found an illustrated book ‘A Tolkien Bestiary’ by David Day in Oxfam bookshop. Beautiful pen illustrations. I copied this fantastic eagle illustrated by Alan Curless. I think my eagle would never have got off the ground but enjoyed drawing it, he looks just as evil though. A selection of Faber Castell B pencils.
