I am a bit rusty at sketching as it’s been a few years since I’ve been able to do any drawing or painting, but I like the kind of “handmade” feel of my sketch of Frodo and the artwork around it. It’s kind of rough and dirty but I also kind of like that – as if you’d find it on a hand – painted sign way out on some dusty country road in front of a pasture full of goats and sheep and chickens. I don’t want anything that looks too “polished”, if you know what I mean.
At any rate I scanned in my sketch and opened a cafepress shop so I can get some mugs, etc. I’ll be using this artwork in the future on tags for any etsy products I sell. One day we’ll have a real working farm with actual farm products!! and I’ll be ready.
