  1. Sorry to be so late in replying, Emily. I’m a bit delinquent, and still unused to the new formatting, too.

    Thanks very kindly for your words. It is a truly great thing to be able to give articulate expression to my long time love of Tolkien’s realms, and if it in turn inspires fellow artists and readers, then I’m truly blessed. Best of luck in your own career. ~Ted

  2. Thanks so much. Yes I threw myself into the idea of a glorious Elven city, yet according to Tolkien’s description and drawing.
