RIP Ray Harryhausen

As you know Ray Harryhausen passed away this week. The man is one of my heroes and one of the inspirations for how I got into illustrating. I remember watching Jason and the Argonauts as a small child (still a fave film today!) and being absolutely scared out of my wits when Talos turned his head and that noise it makes!! I jumped out of my skin!

The Gates of Argonath in the Two Towers always make me think of the shot of Talos above. I recently learned that Peter Jackson is a huge fan of Harryhausen, well, there you go then!
