Why this piece is awesome: This is a little different to this artist's usual works. The composition is more informal and the dark background echoes Russian and Japanese laquer work rather than of Western Art Deco. It's a very striking piece in any case and I love the way it mirrors the combination of danger and humour present in the book.

Why this piece is awesome: This is such a wonderful portrayal of Bilbo relaxing outside his door. Everything is so green and lush and Bilbo looks so content with his long pipe, sending smoke rings up into the air. It looks just the way I've always imagined the opening scene in the book.
