Green Ents 2010 Pen- ink-watercolour - illustration board. This was a private commission for a patron in the USA. The brief: "Anything with Ent's in." Back in the late 70's I contributed images to a book called A Tolkien Bestiary by David Day, and it was then I made my first stab at drawing walking trees. Strange to say, I've never stopped drawing them. The thought that a tree might actually talk and start walking is rather wonderful, although I'm not sure the dog would approve.
