Some images made for a story I'm currently writing :-)



In December 2007 I wrote a short story in which Legolas and Eowyn rescued an elfling and tried to return him to his parents. It was posted in 24 parts 'behind' the doors of a Yuletide (Advent) calendar, and ended on a bit of a cliffhanger. Now, only eighteen months later ;-) I've started writing a continuation, which I'll be posting at my website...

In the original story, the elfling had a picture book -- an Elvish abc -- and I thought it would be fun to create some of the pages, though they haven't quite come out how I expected! The animals/birds/plants are drawn in fibre tip pen and coloured pencil and are pasted onto torn tissue and scrapbooking papers; the text has been added using a photo editing program.

Thank you! I do have some more drawn out and hope to do a full Elven alphabet (it's about 18 letters) eventually.

Absolutely gorgeous!

I love these pieces -- they are exquisite! The subjects are all so perfectly rendered, and the richness of the layering is so beautifully done.

Oh, btw, I too am here via fileg's LJ. I'm so glad she posted the link to this. What a feast for the eyes.
