~aegeri (https://www.deviantart.com/aegeri) - aegeri (https://www.deviantart.com/aegeri) is a great Czech artist and active member of the Tolkien community. Below you can read more about her art and all the other fun things she does, after a few examples from her tolkien gallery (but take a look at her main gallery as well, there is more uncathegorized Tolkien stuff).

1. Hello! For the beginning, could you tell us something about yourself?
Greetings, my name is Lída Holubová, but in our Czech Tolkien/larp community I'm rather known as Aegeri. I come from the western part of Czech republic. It's
I have just finished a weekend of exhibition during the event "the Culture Walk /Kulturvandringen" in Mölnlycke. It was a FANTASTIC experience with lots of visitors! I had such a great time talking to everyone and receiving feedback on my paintings! I'm really grateful that so many of you came by to talk to me and to look at my art!!! It was amazing and HUGE THANKS to everyone! Right now I'm pretty exhausted from all the positive energy, but I can't wait to see everyone again next year!
Here's a picture of me standing by my painting "Early morning walk" and with my son's ink drawing called "Rainbow land" just below!
Thanks to the abomination of Daylight Savings Time and a lovely 8:00am committee meeting this morning, I'm functioning on too damn few hours of sleep. So, naturally this is when I once again update my journal. This will likely be insane, but those of you who read this stuff (I'm talking to you, tigerli-ly (https://www.deviantart.com/tigerli-ly)) are likely used to that.

"More than one universe" describes where I live. :D
4. Do you look forward

~fish-in-fridge (https://www.deviantart.com/fish-in-fridge) - fish-in-fridge (https://www.deviantart.com/fish-in-fridge) is not only an artist creating an interesting blend of anime and Tolkien in her illustrations (if you read the interview, you will also find out why anime), but also a fanfiction writer, translator and illustrator.

Each year on 3 January, the Tolkien Society encourages Tolkien fans from across the world to celebrate the Professor’s birthday with a simple toast-drinking ceremony, and we are joining them, as well.
At 9pm your local time, we invite Tolkien fans to raise a glass and toast the birthday of this much loved author. The toast is simply:"The Professor!"
All you need to do is stand, raise a glass of your choice of drink (not necessarily alcoholic), and say the words “The Professor” before taking a sip (or swig, if that’s more appropriate for your drink). Sit and enjoy the rest of your drink.
