Great portrait! I wonder what he would think about the intense love and LOTR fandom that surrounds his work.
Hey Kim, From what I have read, he was mortified by how much press his books were getting. Of course this was near the end of his life when the Hippie movement in the 60s really started to embrace his books. However they took it as an anti-war message which Tolkien was also very upset to hear about. He was not anti-war at all. He fought in WWI and strongly believed there are times when wars must be fought. He also hated when his books were considered allegorical, him hating allegory in all its forms, as he states in his forward to the Lord of the Rings. But ultimately he did not like how popular his work had become. He often said he had mainly done it for himself. Anyways, that is just what I read somewhere.
I love listening to recordings of him, he sounds exactly as Gandalf should sound. ;) This portrait is fantastic, man.
nice Tyler. im still lookin forward to some silmarillion work from you man :)
