Alan Lee's work was the perfect compliment to the high fantasy writing of JRR Tolkien, Brian Froud and Dennis McKiernan. Elves, Dwarves, Orcs, Giants, Trolls, Towers, Castles, and pristine forests became just some of the many magnificent subjects of his brush.
He is an award winning illustrator from the United Kingdom, having attended Ealing School of Art. Along with the book illustrations, but Lee worked as a movie concept and story board illustrator. His work is recognizable everywhere it appears.
