It’s not exactly D&D, but all over the internet I’ve been reminded that today is Bilbo and Frodo Baggins’ birthday.

One site I visited complained that he had wanted to include an image with his post but was having trouble finding an image of Bilbo or Frodo (let alone the two together) that wasn’t from the Peter Jackson movies. Taking that as a challenge, I set out to see what I could find.

Indeed he was right. The vast number of images out there are from the recent movies. However, searches for Rankin Bass as well as Hildebrandt brought up all sorts of great illustrations.

Having found one I particularly liked (see thumbnail), I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and help celebrate the birthday of these two famous hobbits. :)

Happy Birthday Bilbo and Frodo!
