Tim Hildebrandt Dies

Tim Hildebrandt, one half of the identical twins known as the Brothers Hildebrandt, died on June 11 due to complications from diabetes. I never knew Tim (or his brother Greg), but I loved their artwork from an early age. Their renditions of Tolkien’s words brought Middle-earth to life for me as a kid, and they defined fantasy artwork in my mind. As a writer, I can only hope I can craft stories half as vivid as the images, Tim and Greg created together.

  1. I had to pull my old hardback copy of Sword of Shannara off the shelf to look at the inserts after reading this entry.

    The Hildebrandt’s were a part of why I started to read fantasy in the first place.
