LotR Artist Gallery - John Howe

John Howe keeps a very minimalist biography, so I'll start off with some words of my own. I'm sure we're all familiar with John's work. His site features more than four hundred drawings and illustrations, so I am really at a loss when it comes to picking out pictures to highlight. I highly recommend visiting his website and looking through them yourselves. But let's see John's bio: "Biographies are difficult, and hard facts generally pretty rare.
So, welcome to the strict minimum.

Born in 1957 in Vancouver, grew up in British Columbia.

Studied at the Ecoles des Arts Décoratifs de Strasbourg. Lives in Switzerland as a freelance illustrator, with wife Fataneh (also an illustrator), and son Dana (who knows what he will be, but he does play awfully good classical guitar).

All pictures are taken from LinkJohn's gallery.
