Colin Williams

The single most prolific Tolkien calendar creator found on this website. A wonderful series (1999 to date) of calendars featuring amazingly detailed pen and ink drawings based upon "The Hobbit" produced by Mr. Williams as Christmas presents for family and friends.

In 2009, he created his first calendar based upon "The Lord of the Rings" executed in watercolors; that series continues to today, also. In all, including all variants in size (A3 and A4), he has created 52 different calendars as of the 2016 issues. When I was fortunate enough to first discover and collect one of his calendars, Colin, as I like to think, recognized a kindred soul and helped me to collect all of his calendars. For this, I will always be grateful.
