I talked with Lindsay Nohl about process and work and how to be a professional a few weeks back on the Light Grey Art Lab Podcast, specifically about my Ainulindalë book. Listen and enjoy and hear one of my favorite people, Anna Bongiovanni, say the complete opposite of everything I say!
Click to listen. I think the best part is at the end.
And finally, part 6 of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Ainulindalë. I’m glad its getting the response it has gotten. Here’s hoping I maybe get to other stories from the Silmarillion. I’d love to do Beren and Lúthien or maybe the Akallabêth.
Start with Part 1.
J.R.R. Tolkien’s Ainulindalë, part 3. The Song of the Ainur. This one has nods to other parts of The Silmarillion, like Telperion and Laurelin, for those true nerds out there.
Part 1 is here
Part 2 is here
Part 4 is here
Ainulindalë, part 2. Thanks for all the positive feedback, everyone! A lot of you have asked about buying a copy in book form. I will have copies at SPX and then I will sell them online. They are expensive to make since there are 54 pages of crazy color.

Part 3 is here
The Garden of the Ainur. All of my pages are complete! Now its time for all the post production and lettering.
One more in-progress shot. Beginning watercolor. It’s going to be a lot of instagram for a bit.
Ainulindalë style take 2. Yay or nay? I think I will probably do the whole thing in watercolor/ink rather than this digital shiz.
Hey dudes, I need your help! I’m hard at work on the fourth chapter of my graphic novel, but it won’t be done by the next convention I’m going to, Autoptic. But ALSO, I just read Tolkien’s The Silmarillion and I had the idea to do an illustrated version of the first part, The Ainulindalë, which is like an origin story of all of Middle-Earth, but its super abstract. I’m thinking it would look something like this. TELL ME, would this be something you’d want to buy???
