The Bohemian Weasel is the
talented Soni Alcorn-Hender. Originally from England, she
now lives in Portugal. She joined the Valar Guild August 11, 2007.
Artwork is done by hand.
Some pictures here are in more than one category to
make finding of them easy. They are used from here to illustrate our
Tolkien Encyclopedia, so these only include those subjects related to
As a fellow Tolkien fan, Ms. Alcorn-Hender has allowed the Valar
Guild the unusual privilege of the use of her artwork to
illustrate our Tolkien Encyclopedia since December 2007, and has
allowed us to place the
artwork on our site. We may also use them on non-romance, very Tolkien stories. This helps cut down the use of her bandwidth.
However, all is still copyrighted and any use for
another site must be requested from her.
She may be contacted through her personal site: The Bohemian Weasel Galleries. If you are lucky, you may find some unsold work and buy it. Certain sales benefit charities.
In an email in January 2009 concerning some of her
most recent work she says: "the works I did for Topps trading
cards...have the movie logo
stamped on them. But I was very glad to be asked to partake,
especially as my work was vetted first of all by a guy from New Line
cinema. So huzzah, I'm an official LotR artist. :)"

Certain other areas permission letter excerpt Jan. 14, 2009:
You had asked if I'd mind my artwork possibly being used to
illustrate poems or stories there.
Well to answer that, no, I
really don't mind at all as long as the stories/poems are of the kind
that are respectful to Tolkien's work and don't throw the characters
into romances, particularly with each other, lol. Though I did just
have a quick look at the site and what I saw seemed lovely, and very
'Tolkien'. I was particularly taken by a 100 word 'drabble' on Legolas
coming home, aww. But yes, please feel free! And of course the same
goes with the Encyclopedia. :)
It's just a shame that some of my
recent works, which I also liked a lot, were done for under a license
which means I don't know if you could use it on your site. (They're the
works I did for Topps trading cards, and have the movie logo stamped on
them.) But I was very glad to be asked to partake, especially as my
work was vetted first of all by a guy from New Line cinema. So huzzah,
I'm an official LotR artist. :)
