Hey guys!

As a few of you know, I joined staff a while ago. I just published my first article on the website concerning characters that could be added into the films, including this rumored Itaril. Included in the article are a few drawings I made for the article.

Please let me know what you think, and if you have any questions or comments about it.

I would love to get the tolkien group a subscription that I, a poor college student currently searching for a job, cannot afford. Any extra would go to winners of contests held by the group. :)

United States
I'm a 21-year-old wannabe art-type currently studying for a BA in arts; I expect to graduate in 2012. I was born and raised in Southern California and love it dearly. My name is Finnish; my mom was born and raised in Finland. My father is an American "mutt". I'd have it no other way.

I am the eldest of four. The youngest was adopted from China in 2007 and I tend to talk about her quite a bit. She's one of my greatest inspirations.

I'm also a huge Lord of the Rings and Tolkien geek, if my journal and gallery were not enough hints. Tolkien has changed my life, as cliche as that sounds. I began writing and drawing because of his influence, and now I aim to get into the film industry due to Jackson's films on his books. That must count for something. And yes, I am in love with Aragorn. His lack of reality makes no difference.

I'm a really open person and willing to talk about basically anything. Feel free to send me a note whenever you want. :aww:

Current Residence: Middle-earth. Or SoCal. Wherever my mind happens to be at the time.
Favourite genre of music: Rock, 'Nu Metal', soundtrack music
Favourite style of art: Traditional, Digital
Operating System: Windows Vista. Bleh.
MP3 player of choice: iPod <3
Wallpaper of choice: Anything with Aragorn ^^
Favourite cartoon character: Zuko <3
Personal Quote: Practice makes perfect; since perfect does not exist, you will always be practicing.

Hello there, fellow Tolkien geek! Lovely gallery you have here :D Just curious, are you also on/a staffer at It seems like you would be!

But anyway, great works. I love when I find avid Tolkien fans like myself. It helps me remember there's still people with good taste out there :)
