The Hobbit 75th Anniversary Edition

This was just a book cover assignment for school, but for me it meant a lot more.

This new curvalinear style you've seen me doing was originally inspired by several things, most importantly this painting by J.R.R. Tolkien.

The Hobbit is probably my favorite story of all time. and has been extremely inspiring and influential to my work.

So here is what I think would be an awesome cover to celebrate the 75th anniversary of this epic tale.

Hopefully I don't have to explain it, but my intent was to make the title an ambigram and make the 4 corner words (spelling out the less well known full title of the book) rotate encouraging the viewer to actually rotate the book and literally go "there and back again"

The Triumphant

Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed." - G.K. Chesterton.

Messenger of Destruction

This is the character from my logo. I'm about ready to order a new set of business cards so I decided to render him out for the image side.
