Artist: John Howe

Gandalf Stormcrow - John Howe

Illustrations by John Howe

John Howe is quite possibly my favorite Tolkien illustrator.  There are few artists who create tribute art as detailed and none as prolific.  Howe is a Swiss freelance illustrator who studied at the Ecoles des Arts Décoratifs de Strasbourg.
