The drawing of young Bilbo Can't Post

seems to have been done by Daniel Reeve.
From his website, see news for Dec. 13.
http://www.danielreeve.co.nz/...2.php#29November2012

Or has anyone seen any other information on it?

If you look at the news archive for 12 Dec, [In reply to] Can't Post

it specifically says (here: http://www.danielreeve.co.nz/archive2.php) under a banner containing the drawing of young Bilbo, "Work by Graphic Artist, Daniel Reeve, is featured throughout the film - a few examples (but by no means all) are shown above." That's definitive enough for me.

By the way, a meeting with Daniel Reeve was was part of The Lord of the Rings Movie Location Tour with Red Carpet Tours. Like most Kiwis, he seemed to be an exceptionally pleasant person. Even gave us all a small sample of his calligraphy. Absolutely lovely person.

Yes [In reply to] Can't Post

I, too, met Daniel Reeve on a Red Carpet tour. An absolutely delightful and exceedingly pleasant person---as well as a very talented artist!

"Exceptional" is so right! Have you seen The Map? [In reply to] Can't Post

He is such a delightful artist, he even created a Map of TheOneRing.net Message Boards from a list (pile?) of mere ideas!

Here's the "Conspiracy Unmasked" thread: http://newboards.theonering.net/...hreaded;post=42379;"

And here's a good pic of his Map:http://newboards.theonering.net/...threaded;post=42383;

Same here--the TORn map makes me smile [In reply to] Can't Post

   
As you can see by my grin when I had my photo taken with Daniel and his copy of it Smile I'm pointing to my own name in the margin.



My own copy of the map is hanging on the wall beside me at this very moment.

You met him :-)?! [In reply to] Can't Post

That's wonderful! He was so amazingly friendly and great to work with. And his story is one that I find so inspirational. How he had his ordinary life and ordinary job, and just followed his heart with his LOTR calligraphy in his own time all those years, and then one day (like Gandalf in reverse, sort of, lol), he sent out his work to the film makers, and poof, his whole life changed in such a remarkable way. And he *so* deserves it - he is immensely talented.

That's a great photo :-). And btw, I just peeked at my map and I see your name is only two names away from mine, lol Smile!!

My copy is over my shoulder [In reply to] Can't Post

My daughter had never really paid attention to Mom's obession about LOTR but the Hobbit has grabbed her attention and she finally made the connection between the map in the Chronicles book and the one hanging on my wall.

Daniel... [In reply to] Can't Post

...is really a nice guy. I interviewed him for our Russian site once when he was in Germany for the RingCon. I got him to sign my Shire map from Decipher. :)

TH got my daughter's attention too - so she finally asked me if "that map on the wall' is a map of LOTR (i.e, Middle-earth). So I tried to explain 'it sort of is, but not really' ... and then realized it is a little tough to explain to someone outside of the boards, exactly what it *is* a map of Crazy Sly!
