It was late November 2010 I received an exciting email from HarperCollins Publishers, asking if I would be interested in submitting some illustrations for a possible children’s edition of The Hobbit. For the following three years I was constantly absorbed in the story. I was drawing noon until night, and dreaming of the characters when I was asleep. I enjoyed every moment of it, and I was honoured that Christopher Tolkien had asked me to illustrate his father’s famous world.
In September 2013, 150 of my illustrations were published in a new version of J.R.R Tolkien’s The Hobbit. This edition has been published in 9 different languages.
The Hobbit is currently available in both hardback and paperback. If you would like to purchase the book please visit the Official Tolkien Bookshop.
