So, I decided to switch things up this week, and bring back an old post of mine: Art Attack. (Here are links to two of my favorites, Adventure Time and Star Wars). Back when IGGPPC Headquarters was still at the old website, I started off blogging with a monthly art series. Here was my mission statement from when I started in June (how time flies!):
” Basically, I’ll just pick a theme each month, centered around one of many different geek loves. Most of my art picks will also (hopefully) have links, so if you absolutely can’t get over the sheer wonder of that Harry Potter illustration or Doctor Who painting, you’ll be able to purchase it. My mission is to make your walls beautiful with all sorts of wonderful geeky art!”
Don’t get me wrong, I love doing The Treasure Box, and I’ll still be posting a round up of the geeky news and tidbits we all love, I just wanted to do something a bit different, and thought that it would be fun to get back into this. After all, I haven’t did a LOTR, Star Trek, Harry Potter……okay, let’s just say there are many more fandoms I can draw inspiration from for this post.
For this one, though, I decided to do LOTR/Middle Earth. I’ve always loved Lord of the Rings, and with the second part of The Hobbit out this December, I thought it was appropriate. Let’s hop to it, shall we?
One of my favorite parts of that movie, immortalized in poster form-very nice.
Eowyn will always be one of my favorite characters- have you seen the part where she defeats the Witch King? Holy girl power, Batman.
This artist has a bunch of different LOTR inspired art prints, but this was one of my favorites- this scene always makes me tear up a bit.
I think this has been my favorite quote ever since I first heard it.
If you didn’t desire to travel to Middle Earth( um, have you seen the movies?), after seeing these beautiful posters, you definitely will.
Merry and Pippin, aka one of the greatest best friend pairings in pop culture, in my humble opinion.
He always was good with the bow.
This is good enough art to actually be in one of the editions of The Hobbit- it reminds me of cover art on some fantasy novels I’ve seen.
Puns and Middle Earth? I’ll take it.
I think this pose truly fits Bilbo- ready to help, but still scared witless nonetheless.
Sadly, this isn’t for sale, but it was too cute not too share.
I hope you enjoyed all the Middle Earth inspired art, and thanks for reading, you guys! I’ll post a super mega two week edition of The Treasure Box next week, to make up for not posting this week! Love to all my fellow Iggles,
