NF-Lee's Gildor and Frodo

Featuring fan art by Taerie, also plugging Whiteling, Maewyn and Ariel

While I am on this procrastination roll, I thought I would post a Frodo illustration I came across that I really, really admired....

I don’t usually take the time to browse any of the Tolkien fanart galleries, but occasionally a fellow-poster will display a new work -- her own, or someone else’s. That is how I have come across drawings of Frodo that I have really liked. The illustration I am linking below, however, I “discovered” in a more intentional way.

A month or so ago, an LJ user whom I did not know, taerie posted a comment. Immediately I was struck by her icon. It looked like a detail from a larger Frodo art work.

Here is a facsimile of her icon (hers has text added):

That sliver of image intrigued me so much I went to her User Page, found out she was an artist, followed her link to a gallery where her pieces were being hosted, and saw what must be the full image,in the midst of a string of thumbnails.

I clicked it open, and fell in love....
