HOBBIT DEPOT

Illustration, Book Design

In the days before I was a designer, I was a contractor at the local Home Depot, working for an HVAC company. My job was to sign people up for “free, in-home consultations for their air conditioning and heating needs.” The job was such a bore that I read JRR Tolkein’s The Hobbit in its entirety. This inspired me to create “The Hobbit Depot”: a retelling of Bilbo Baggins’ journey, but this time through Home Depot instead of Middle Earth. More to come soon!
