Dragons are known as great hoarders of treasure, and the ultimate dragon-miser has to be the gigantic Smaug, from J.R.R. Tolkien's epic Lord of the Rings. (More specifically, from the prequel to that story, The Hobbit.) I've attempted to capture this grand creature as he looms in brooding guard over his mountains of uncountable loot, planning his next soaring quest to add still more riches to his vast haul, and waiting for the next unwary treasure hunter to come his way.

--Info on the printing process, plus care & feeding instructions--
This is an open-edition print, created from a film negative made directly from the original pen and ink artwork, then retouched by the artist, and printed by offset lithography on Starwhite paper stock. Mounting and matting materials are either low-acid or acid-free. To maintain the quality of this work, do not display it where it will be exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods, or to extremes of temperature or humidity. I also recommend that you look at it once it is up on your wall (at least six times a week is considered the minimum), or else it will get sad and lonely, and the tear-stains will make it look less attractive.
