Donato Giancola’s MicroVisions

Anyone following Donato Giancola’s website closely has seen a few new Lord of the Rings drawings and paintings. That’s because he’s working on what sounds like a dream job, a Tolkien inspired art book for Underwood Books (the publishers of Spectrum.)

Donato took advantage of the time spent on MicroVisions to creat this portriat of Dwarf Telchar forging Aragorn’s sword, Narsil, which will also appear in th ebook.

I’m getting so excited to see this little show. It will be on the walls at the Society of Illustrators starting April 27th. The auction will be the first or second week of May — stay tuned for details!

Hi Irene,
I'm really enjoying reading through your blog as I lay here on a bed far too small for me trying to wait out my fussing three year old boy. Having kids is such a tiring endeavor some times. Anyway. I thought I'd tell you that it appears the link to the society of illustrators is broken in this post. It looks like there are one too many / near the end.
