Hobbit Advent Calendar by AcuteCat Hobbit Advent Calendar by AcuteCat
Advent Calendar (with 31 compartments, so it can be used in ANY month) based on Tolkien's "The Hobbit" -- I made this with a wide variety of materials including watercolor, colored pencil, ink (including gold and silver ink), card stock and an assortment of papers, matboard, and lots and lots of patience with scissors, glue, and exacto knife.
Each window or door opens onto a little compartment; compartments vary in depth -- from right at the surface of the calendar to an inch deep, and each features a drawing of a character or important object from "The Hobbit" (you may've guessed already, but #1 is of course The One Ring while the largest, 31, opens onto Bilbo in his hallway).
All of my drawings are based on the book descriptions; I tried not to be too influenced by the movies (even though I really love them!)

I'm keeping this for my personal collection, but there are printed versions available in my Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/shop/AcuteCat

It's Bilbo standing in his hallway, with his hand in his waistcoat pocket.
