Hobbits Love Cherries

Hobbits Love Cherries, parody art by Amy Crook

“You’re as sweet as a bowl full of cherries!”
The Hobbit parody art by Amy Crook

Bilbo Baggins has a flower-petal bowl full of summer goodness — cherries are perfectly appropriate to Middle Earth New Zealand this time of year! He thinks you’re just as sweet as those luscious little fruits, and I’m inclined to agree.

He’s not for sale, though, so if you want to share his sentiment with someone you love, you’ll have to get him on a card in my Etsy shop.

Deck the Smaug, holiday fan art by Amy Crook

Deck the Smaug, holiday fan art by Amy Crook

I’m pretty sure this is the silliest holiday card I’ve ever designed, but I’m such a fan of the silly Smaug/Bilbo art out there on the internet, I had to toss in one of my own. Bilbo raided Smaug’s hoard for bells and gold chains, but I have no idea where he got the giant ribbons or pine boughs for the rest of his cheerful holiday decorating.

At least Smaug will smell delicious while he’s eating you!

Deck the Smaug, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper. He is, of course, available as a card in my Etsy shop.

A Hobbity Birthday

Hobbit Birthday Traditions, parody art by Amy Crook

Hobbit Birthday Traditions, parody art by Amy Crook

Happy my-upcoming-Birthday to you! On Sunday I’ll be properly 40, and in grand hobbit tradition I have some little gifts for you.

Bilbo is of course available on a card, being his grumpy old self. I really enjoy antisocial old Bilbo Baggins and his dismissal of everyone else’s gossip about him. Though he still knows how to throw a party!

Flowers for Bilbo

Flowers for Bilbo, a Hobbit parody commission by Amy Crook

“Tears, Gandalf. Tears and murder.”

Yes, this is related to a fic. No, I’m not going to tell you where to find it. Just be amused by poor Bilbo getting courting bouquets by two infamous dwarves, Dwalin and Thorin. Don’t worry, I’m sure it all turns out all right in the end, no murder required.

Above, you can see Bilbo’s worried expression and pink blush, and some of my carefully-researched flowers. I had to look up what most things actually looked like, though I did know how to draw Lily of the Valley already. Below, you can see it hanging out in a temporary frame, looking spiffy before it gets shipped off to its new home.

Bilbo and Smaug Bookmark 2

Bilbo and Smaug Bookmark 2 by Amy Crook

Bilbo and Smaug Bookmark 2 by Amy Crook

Here, there be dragons! Well, dragon. Well, Smaug.

After I sold the first Bilbo & Smaug bookmark, I drew up a second one for someone else who’d asked after it. I went a little more elaborate on this one, intending to use it for promo bookmarks, just like yesterday’s Spock. It’s still sketchy and whimsical, but with more elaborate coloring and a bit of gold to go with the big purple dragon.

If you’d like a bookmark of your own, there’s still a few left from prior Bookmark Weeks!

Tea at Bag End

Tea at Bag End, The Hobbit fan art by Amy Crook

Tea at Bag End, The Hobbit fan art by Amy Crook

After I drew Second Breakfast and sold the original, I was very sad for the empty spot on my wheat-yellow wall he had once occupied. So, I drew a Bilbo of my very own! He’s having a lovely tea at home in his dressing gown. Bilbo’s very glad to be back in the Shire where a hobbit can get six proper meals a day and enjoy a proper cuppa in comfort.

I’m considering making prints or blank cards, I haven’t decided yet, but his original art is staying here with me.

Above, you can see Reaching Out and Tea at Bag End in their permanent homes, and Skull Paper (which will post later this week) hanging out with them so I can enjoy it while I still have it.

Bilbo and Smaug Bookmark 1

Bilbo & Smaug Bookmark 1 by Amy Crook

Bilbo & Smaug Bookmark 1 by Amy Crook

This is the other bookmark that someone already claimed, a wee tiny Hobbit looking quite distressed indeed to be confronted with a dragon. Smaug, on the other hand, looks highly amused by his discovery. I’m definitely going to do some more art for The Hobbit as well, I want to draw some dwarves.

Things will be back to normal tomorrow with another moon for Monday, so I hope you enjoyed this Bookmark Week and picked up one for yourself or a friend!
