I saw this on icanhascheeseburger. From there, I followed it to a Smauglock tumblr. I went through twenty pages of the tumblr to find the original. I have, at last, tracked this back to you. Just to say, WOW. You made me giggle. This is excellent.
Sent here on a rec from Anonymous Plume on LJ. This is adorable! Never mind backgrounds or lack thereof - what you've captured here is the essence of really good children's book illustrations, in all their charm and humour.
SQUEEEE! It's so utterly perfect, down to the sweater and the feet and the shopping bag and the scarf and and and........ <3 I love all the little details (and the background is fine, honestly) Very well done, if I may say so! -Ll
I squeal at this. And it doesn't help that I confirmed my fangirlself that Martin and Benedict are in The Hobbit. Oh. How I love it! This is brilliant work! And I shall favorite it and cherish it forever!
