To this day she can't look at it without getting sick to her stomach.

Here's what you see through our living room window, as you walk up the path to the front door.
Here are a few pictures of our graveyard, and the car crash we staged. That's right... we staged an accident on our front lawn. No, we didn't destroy our fence just for Halloween. The fence was rotten and falling down, so we though, as long as we're getting rid of it, we might as well put it to good use. We actually fooled a number of people who thought the wreck was real:)

Initially, I was hired to be a Production Illustrator. But later, I was asked to be the Visual Effects Art Director, as well as the Scenic Unit Director. I would be lying if I said it was anything less than a dream job!
Below are some of the small color roughs I did for the films. Visit my Portfolio Page to see some of my final illustrations. You may have seen some of these images in the "Art Of LOTR" books, but sadly, the color reproductions in those books were terrible. This is what they were supposed to look like.
Unless otherwise noted, these are all acrylic painting.
