There and Back again, Pages 299 to 303 - The Final Illustrations

Let the trumpets herald the end of this project!  Yes, I have reached the final illustration post for There and Back again, An Illustration Project of The Hobbit.  A project I began in early 2012, finished the illustrations for in April/May of 2013, and will have finished documenting it here in October 2014.  303 illustrations completed, one for each page of The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkein.

I have created a new page on my website for this project so it can be viewed in its entirety.

So, without further delay, let's finish the Hobbit:
