In 1979, Bantam Books published Greg and Tim Hildebrandt's first fantasy novel titled URSHURAK.
The final pencil pieces that were used as interior illustrations are some of the finest pencil work the Hildebrandt Brothers have created. This piece titled, 'The Anvil' was never printed in the book, though the work was done just as beautifully as the other pieces. URSHURAK stayed on the New York Times Best Seller List for six weeks. Very few of these special pieces are still available.
This sketch was signed by Greg & Tim Hildebrandt prior to Tim's death in 2006.
Created in 1978.
Pencil on vellum paper.
