The Peter Jackson / Steven Colbert interaction in this video is pretty hilarious.

First of the bearded dwarf-lassies colored! Next two to come later :)
Anyone have some name suggestions?
Virginia and I both at the same just tried to mimic J.R.R. Tolkien reading Tumblr’s “Hobbit fan fiction” and we both mumbled incoherently trying to impersonate him (not realizing that’s what the other was about to do). It was funny. I imagine him saying something like, “Get the fasdfkj of my lawn you frwegae hippies…fhrfhwef!”
Have you listened to him reading The Hobbit; it’s pretty adorable.
Uploading for Virginia. This is awesome! I just like seeing them all smile, it warms my heart. Martin Freeman and some of the dwarves pose with their respective Lego counterparts.
“Bilbo in his study” by Brian J. Smith
Finally! It’s done! I’ve been working on this for a couple weeks and finally I get to share it!
“Concerning Hobbits” Ink. Virginia Giordano.
Oh man. Finally done. Though I might do color washes later…So, the work of J.R.R. Tolkien is my life, and I’m constantly attempting to pay homage in my work. This time however, I felt like paying a little homage to Peter Jackson and the cast. I’m a huge fan of the movies and I don’t really believe in the “one or the other” mentality.
The piece in general is about Hobbits and their relationship with nature and their ability to remain unseen. I gave each Hobbit an item relating to the four elements, which also happen to reflect their personalities, for Pippin: Beer/Water, Merry: Pipe/Air, Samwise: Athelas/Earth, and Frodo: The One Ring forged in Fire.
Okay, my shop of the week is late for a good reason. I intended on featuring Stitchy Button yesterday, and as fate would have it, the surprise birthday gift Brian got me from Stitchy Button arrived in the mail yesterday!
Catherine Boucher, the talented lady behind Stitchy Button, made me the custom Dwalin doll pictured above. I cannot even explain to you how much I love it. I literally cried. I CRIED. The detail is perfect. He’s wearing the green hood that he hangs up in Bag End, and the golden belt and even a little warhammer! So magical. I think I might commission her to make me a giant Dwalin that will soak up my tears when The Hobbit comes out.
ANYWAY. Just look at the amazing. She can do anything, from Game of Thrones, to Doctor Who, Harry Potter, The Avengers, Lord of the Rings, Zelda, Star Wars, scarves and bunnies and back again. She is capable of magical, magical things.
Commissions begin at $40 dollars and dolls are typically 16 inches tall (13 for Halfings)! Contact her at The Stitchy Button, and be sure to follow her Tumblr account Stitchnik, to get a sneak peak at all the new stuff in the works!
Morc and Orcle.
Fuck. Yeah. Except my school’s gallery broke Orcle…I’d like to imagine they at least said, “Did I do that?” after dropping him.
