Available WHILST STOCKS LAST as WRATH, RUIN AND A RED NIGHTFALL: The Art of John Cockshaw from Amazon.

Welcome to the blog and this collection of original artwork inspired by The Lord of the Rings and J.R.R Tolkien's wider mythology of Middle-earth. Aside from the influence of the source writing of Tolkien influence is also drawn from Director Peter Jackson's film trilogy (2001-2003) and the highly regarded Tolkien illustrators Alan Lee and John Howe. The magnificent musical score written for the film trilogy by Howard Shore also holds a significant influence upon the atmospheric and evocative quality of the works in this collection. From Mordor to the Misty Mountains combines landscape, miniature-scale and composite photography to depict locations, dramatic scenes and characters from the enduringly popular stories.

Read the feature here and their link to my work on their Facebook page. A very enjoyable interview to do and a superb opportunity to have the work exposed to LOTR and Hobbit fans. The organiser of the site will shortly be featured in an article in The Independent concerning Hobbit-related events for fans in anticipation of the first new film opening here in the UK.

My artist page has now been updated on The Rapture Gallery website to accommodate the collection and its availability. Please note, work will not be on display at the venue until the end of November / start of December but is available to purchase anytime through the site.
