Middle Earth Madness

So a bit of an update to the blog with a slightly different flavour than usual. As part of the gigantic Tourism NZ campaign associated with the release of the Hobbit, my colleagues at Weta Gus Hunter, Paul Tobin and I have done a series of illustrations transforming photography from around New Zealand into illustrations depicting locations and characters from Middle Earth. The idea being to convey that with a little bit of imagination New Zealand is Middle Earth. Here are a couple of my images that have been released so far.

Check out the website to see Gus and Paul's work too:
