Lo­ca­tion: Canada Web: www.ted­na­smith.com Email: email@ted­na­smith.com me­dia: Gouache En­cour­aged to get more se­ri­ous about his art by a let­ter from none other than JRR Tolkien, Ted has forged a ca­reer as a goto il­lus­tra­tor of all things Mid­dle-earth – although re­cently he’s paid vis­its to George RR Martin’s not-dis­sim­i­lar con­ti­nents of Wes­teros and Es­sos.

“My gen­eral ap­proach to fan­tasy is to echo the great tra­di­tional land­scape painters such as Fred­eric Church, Au­gust Cap­pe­len or Al­bert Bier­stadt, and il­lus­tra­tors such as NC Wyeth, Max­field Par­rish, Gus­tave Doré and Arthur Rack­ham,” says Ted. “I love the chal­lenge of blend­ing re­al­ism with ro­man­ti­cism and almost cin­e­matic at­mos­phere.”
