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.

10,000 strong atleast!


It came with great satisfaction and excitement to see the page-view stats on the blog reach 10,000 recently. This is not bad at all for a project that began in quite modest fashion.  Its continued development is assured. Exciting news is on the way during the next month, things have been slightly hushed recently on account of the work prep to be done for Wrath Ruin and a Red Nightfall to be published by Oloris Publishing in Spring 2014

Meanwhile preparation is underway for Oxonmoot 2013 in September, the annual meet of The Tolkien Society in Oxford where I'll be exhibiting a selection of prints alongside some very talented Tolkien-inspired artists.




I hope to check in very soon...
