He's a book illustration 'borrower', and that's the polite term for it. He didn't draw this, David Alter jr did.

I'd been thinking that it looked like some artwork from the 70's I'd seen, either by a german artist who did this on ceramics or a certain English artist who also did art nouveau, folk style art and pschedelia.

My Dad had a framed poster from back then and the style is the same right down to the colour palette.  Is their any other work by this David Alter Jnr. I haven't come across the name before now.

I haven't seen any, but that's who the official postcard book credited. I'd like to see the work you mentioned though, do you know the name of the artist?

I'll check up, I've seen his work in a book of collectable art from the 60's & 70's the guy I'm thinking about did stuff in the same style and he did work inspired by Art Nouveau but using psychedelic colours.

" Like something you'd find in an old story book"

It *was* something he found in an old story book, drawn by another person. A Hobbit postcard book from 1982 with this illustration by David E Alter (jr). Taht's why there's nothing else like this in this guy's gallery. :/

Very nice, the arrangement and artistic style remind me of the medieval tapestries I saw in my humanities class during my first year of college. It tells most of the story of the hobbit in one fluid scene.

I'm reasonably sure this isn't Ian Escobar Loos work since he doesn't have anything remotely as good in the rest of his gallery, but I can't find out anything about the 'real' artist, David Alter, or David Alter jr. and I can't find an image of the postcard book with this postcard in it.  L. Mangue - can you assist? If we can properly attribute this image we can report it to DA.

a fantastic piece! I agree with the previous statement about the style you used and its resemblance to medieval art and tapestry work. Very clever how the progression is circular which of course takes the viewer (cough cough) there and back again.
Very well done, very well done indeed.

This style of medieval print was sort of the iconogapher's version of Reader's Digest, condensed version.
