After reading The Hobbit in his youth, Kip Rasmussen became fascinated by the work of J.R.R. Tolkien. The release of Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy saw an expansion in the interest and audience for the work of Tolkien which lead Kip to more actively illustrate Tolkien’s novels. His work has been included in Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug as well as The Heroes of Tolkien(2017), The Dark Powers of Tolkien (2018), A Dictionary of Tolkien Resources (2019) and An Illustrated Guide to Tolkien (2019), all from London’s Hachette Publishing. His most passionate professional goal to is to promote The Silmarillion to those fans who love the The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings but haven’t yet discovered Tolkien’s perhaps most transcendent work.
