This is an unused sketch for the 1978 Tolkien Calendar. It shows the destruction of the Dark Tower.

Created by Greg Hildebrandt and Tim Hildebrandt
*Over the past 26 years the fragile paper that this sketch was created on has been slightly damaged. This sketch has a small stain in the top left corner, however this does not decrease its value. If you have any questions regarding this please contact the gallery. Thank you.

Greg dug into his archives to find the few remaining Tolkien sketches that he owned in 2000 when Spiderwebart began to design the Tolkien art of The Brothers Hildebrandt art book, published by Watson-Guptill. This sketch may have some tears in it, but that in no way takes away from its beauty. The computer image does not do this drawing justice.

This sketch was signed by Greg & Tim Hildebrandt prior to Tim's death in 2006.
