A Random Mathom: Hobbit Illustration by Maurice Sendak Can't Post

This has been posted about before, including here, from 2011: http://newboards.theonering.net/...i?post=369804#369804

But I just ran across it searching for something else online, and couldn't resist sharing it again, especially since we have a lot of new members since then. Also, there's a Tolkien illustration just below it that I don't remember seeing as often as some of them.

I find myself really liking this one.

That such a great pic! [In reply to] Can't Post


I love the look of Gandalf. He's so intriguing! Wouldn't it have been great if he'd done more. I'll bet he did, but they were never shared. I think drawing images of Middle-earth is like trying to eat just one potato chip. THERE'S NO WAY! I'd love to see his gollum. :D

Oh yes, Gollum! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd give a lot to see that.
Apparently he did do a couple more before he and Tolkien got their signals mixed. I bet there are several sketches we don't know about, either lying around in his studio, or, anyway, in his head. Smile
