Montreal, Canada, March 19, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Internationally renowned artist Ted Nasmith on TheOneRing.net Radio Show Sunday March 21st at 2PM ET
Ted Nasmith is best known as an illustrator of J. R. R. Tolkien's works — The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion.
In 1972, Nasmith mailed photographs of some of his paintings to J. R. R. Tolkien. Tolkien responded by letter a few weeks later, both praising the work and making the comment that the rendition of Bilbo Baggins seemed a little too childlike. Still a teenager at the time, this early feedback from Tolkien encouraged Nasmith to strive for a more literal interpretation of Tolkien's works.
