Hobbits and Terrible Yellow Eyes
I like a lot of different styles of art. Picasso, Mucha, MIchalangelo, Kirby, Buscema, Bissette, Totleben, Muth...you get the picture. Well Justin Gerard has been added to the list. He's been doing some fine art work over at his blog. He's been tackling Tolkien. One of the most beloved authors of two of the finest pieces of literature. I recommend you check out his brilliance.
Another interesting project Terrible Yellow Eyes. It's a tribute blog dedicated to Maurice Sendak and the brilliant book; Where The Wild Things Are. Different artists invited to present their vision of Mr Sendak's amazing book. I grew up reading this book. I was Max...later on I became one of the Wild Things. Guess I'm still a bit of a Wild Thing.
