The folks over at the headquarter of the ‚German Tolkien Society‘ must think me nuts.
Every time they announce any kind of art competition – photographs, drawing … – my name is guaranteed to pop up, entering with at least one piece of work.
They really must think I have nothing better to do?
Well, maybe I don’t? Maybe I like being creative, wrapping my mind around given tasks?
But maybe they’re happy I’m there every single time?
So, at least there is one participant …
Maybe you’re wondering what this is all about?

Yesterday the winner was announced, and as it turns out they choose my design for this year!

It took me well over two years, till a couple of days ago, to realize that a ‚collectible coaster‘ is in no way the same thing as this – similarly looking and important – item that we in Bavaria use to call ‚bierfuizl‘.
As you can see, I didn’t let this little fact disturb my idea in any way.
