On a blank leaf I scrawled: ‘In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit.’ I did not and do not know why. I did nothing about it for a long time, and for some years I got no further than the production of Thror’s map. But it became The Hobbit in the early 1930s..

-J.R.R. Tolkien in a letter to W.H. Auden, 1955.

let’s remember what started all the names, the places, the mountains and rivers, the poems, the movie trilogies, all the fanfictions, drawings, and paintings.. a sentence. written casually on a blank paper.
I’m so glad he wrote the thing ~

Holy crap, it’s October….. oh well!


Here is a little progress on Finarfin and Fingolfin, because it’s Ben a crap day and I needed to show off the only thing working in my life right now, this drawing… I loved picking up the smudging technique with a Q-tip, which I haven’t done in years, and it really turns out great I hope! ☺️🌟
