A couple of quick doodles Tom Bombadil and a Wizard and a hobbit set off on an adventure

Tolkien invented Tom Bombadil in memory of his children's Dutch doll, and wrote light-hearted children's poems about him, imagining him as a nature-spirit evocative of the English countryside, which in Tolkien's time had begun to disappear. Will start work on a painting of Tom later this week. Sorry for the lack of posts over the last week, one of my dogs was very poorly and passed away, so everything went onto the back burner.
