Nathan Wirth says he was influenced by his love of sci-fi and fantasy novels, including C. S. Lewis’ “Narnia” books, Frank Herbert’s “Dune,” and, of course, Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings,” to which this shot of Golem is a nod.
“All of these books, TV shows, comics and films required my willingness to yield to the impossibility of such things and imagine along with their creators,” Wirth says on his Behance site for the “Imaginations” series. “And it was the necessity that I had to imagine, that I had to accept, that I had to set aside the unbelievable — and even at times the ridiculous — which I found so appealing.”
