This is John Howe’s Bag End!

John Howe, all around nice guy and amazing LOTR artist, not to mention conceptual artist for the LOTR films, really has his hand in making what Middle earth will look like.

Along with Alan Lee, Howe has transformed entire countrysides into places like Edoras, Wearthertop and Hobbiton. Take a read below:

I’m sending you two scans, one attached here, one to follow, of a double page spread from The Fellowship of the Ring: Visual Companion, written by Jude Fisher, published by HarperCollins.

These scans need to be placed side by side for full impact. I’ll also send a scan of John Howe’s Bag End. It shows just how much the films owe to his work, and what a brilliant job Peter Jackson and his crew have done in making Howe’s paintings come to life.
