Hullo, and welcome to my little corner for my hobby-ish graphic design, such as wallpapers, banners, icons, as well as some of my other artwork. Most of the graphics you find here are inspired by favorite artists and fandoms; you can also visit my formal graphic design portfolio Margaret Watkins Design, my formal non-graphic design portfolio Margaret Watkins Art, my not so formal Pearl Graphics and my collection of artistic inspiration & nifty finds Quaint and Curious.

Thank you all for your lovely comments!

Credit for used artwork, text, photos, and brushes goes toward whomever it is due, d'accord. If you go and repost my creations elsewhere, it would be nice if you could credit me and link back.

Didn't get to posting this on September 22nd... but better late than never. Happy birthday to my two favorite gentlemen, er, -hobbits!

Let's Be Wide-Eyed Wanderers Together.

This is my Facebook cover photo; he always brightens my day! I'm a glutton for punishment, but if anyone wants to request a FB cover photo, let me know in the comments below!

I am really not sure whom to credit for the text on both of these. Anyone able to help me?

Something Tookish

 Hey y'all!  Hope you're doing well. I've been doing pretty well overall; busy at my new graphic design job (no more inventory work for me! Yay!) Thought it was high time I made a couple hobbity graphics.

 Text from The Hobbit by Tolkien

I believe the text on this and the next one are from songs from the Lord of the Rings musical (which I've never actually seen, but the words are indeed fitting.)

Well I was working on a mental health center handbook at my job, and in it is a quote from a former client which, when I read it, totally made me believe my friend Anne Marie would flip when seeing a Sam and Frodo wall with it.  So, this was born...
