William Couch 13th September 1944 – 22nd December 2010.

The Lord of the Rings by William Couch. Pencil and charcoal on paper.

PIPPIN: I didn’t think it would end this way.

GANDALF: End? No, the journey doesn’t end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass, and then you see it.

PIPPIN: What? Gandalf? See what?

GANDALF: White shores, and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.

PIPPIN: Well, that isn’t so bad.

GANDALF: No. No, it isn’t.”

I had LOTS of fun in my studio on Tuesday…

My studio is often a chaotic place (tidiness doesn’t come naturally to me) so it’s not unusual for me to mislay things only to find them months later.  I recently rediscovered a whole stash of dalek notebook covers which I’d totally forgotten about – quite a joyful find!  They’ve now been bound into books and are available in my Etsy shop.  Click here to go directly to them.

Back in February I did a street art blog post about Sarm Studios.  I was passing the site again a few weeks ago and found that the hoardings are now home to a piece by CodeFC.

I’ve had some unusual commissions in the past, and this was definitely one of them!  Fun to do, but I imagine it wouldn’t be to everyone’s taste.  I have made a lot of trinket boxes (like this one) and I’ve done them on a variety of themes: Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, romantic ones for anniversaries, and even a tiny one for use as the ring box at a wedding.  This was the first time I’d been asked to do one with a more sinister theme.  The box was to be addressed to Special Agent Clarice Starling, and the back of the box was to bear Hannibal Lecter’s signature.  This is another commission I never got around to blogging (way back in June 2009), and sadly the photos aren’t great quality (I used to have a really terrible camera!) but here it is:
