About Ted Nasmith
Ted Nasmith lives and works in Canada.
His love of Tolkien inspired him to create illustrations from the first reading of The Lord of the Rings at age fifteen. He was soon embarking on ambitious, detailed interpretations of scene after scene from the book, while accumulating a body of sketches. The first major piece was entitled ‘The unexpected party’(1972), rendered in tempera. It featured Gandalf, Bilbo and the dwarves examining the the ancient map of Erebor.
Photographs of this and one or two other early works were shown to JRR Tolkien himself and earned a favourable response. With encouragement, he continued to turn out Tolkien illustrations in his own time for over a decade, some of which were to take many months to finish. In time his work was brought to the attention of George Allen Unwin Ltd. and was soon being published in the Tolkien calendars (1987, 1988, 1990, 1992, and 1996).
