Seeing Justin's lovely LOTR piece reminded me to post some of the Middle Earth stuff I did for the ICE CCG in the mid 90s. (96+ to be exact). Be kind, that was 14 years ago (yeah, I am THAT old). Sadly, it was the before time just before scanning. I have sold some of the paintings and lost some of my favorites. Some were OK, some dreadful :)
I threw this pile of cards on the scanner a couple years ago when a collector from Spain sent them to be signed so some are in Spanish.
I have always loved the Lord of the Rings series of books and this was way before the movies. Tip: the best adaptation ever is the BBC radio show with Ian Holm as Frodo.
