Watch: Alan Lee discusses his artwork at the Tolkien Society Annual Dinner 2016

The Tolkien Society was honoured to host renowned Tolkien artist Alan Lee at its Annual Dinner in York on 9 April 2016. Watch as he discusses his artwork over the past decade or so.

Alan gave a similar presentation at the Tolkien Society’s “The Ring Goes Ever On” conference at Aston University during August 2005. At the Annual Dinner 2016, he updated us on the projects he has worked on since, including illustrating The Children of Húrin in 2007 and working with Peter Jackson as a leading conceptual artist for The Hobbit film trilogy.

After his talk, Alan Lee was bestowed honorary Tolkien Society membership, the highest distinction the Society can confer.
