Mordor Unlimited

Tuesday, December 11th 2012 by Pat

I was traveling through England with Marian and we ended up in Birmingham for a meetup with her fans. Birmingham, as it turns out, is where J.R.R. Tolkien grew up and where he saw the pastoral lifestyle of his youth trampled by the industrial revolution. This immediately got me thinking about drawing orcs in business suits.

I love the idea of orcs in suits.

So here are a few comics that loosely inspect the pastoral/industrial conflict in the Lord of the Rings through the all-seeing eye of Mordor Unlimited Finance.

It’s kind of a Bane Capital meets The Office meets Sauron thing.

  1. Hi Patrick,

    I just discovered your art, via my friend Andy in the Sacramento area, who recently declared your infographics/Hitler poster as one of his favorites. I poked through your site here, looked at all of your Alaska Robotics pieces in one sitting and they’re great. Keep up the good work.

      Thank you! I appreciate the feedback, I’ve got a film festival keeping me busy this week but I have a comic about Miss Havisham and Dinosaurs for next week.

    Nice! Did you change “Bain Capital” to “Bane Capital” on purpose?
