Bilbo BagginsI’ve been reading The Hobbit to my five year-old son (five and three-quarters, as he prefers to hear it stated) lately, and I had the urge last night to try drawing our old friend, Bilbo Baggins, as though I had no prior concept of him from artwork, cartoons, and movies. I sort of failed–it’s almost impossible for me to divorce Bilbo from the image I have in my mind’s eye spawned by the 1977 Rankin Bass cartoon–but I gave it the old Hobbiton try. Thought I’d share. (Click the thumbnail image for a closer look.) Maybe I’ll do more; it was a fun, if not entirely successful, sort of experiment.

    Not bad it has been a while since I read the hobbit. I wounder if I start if I’ll see this in my head from now on.

    At least until Peter Jackson’s movie comes out, maybe :)

    It’s pretty good for someone who hasn’t even seen a picture of him! :D
