A self-illustration

Mauro Mazzara is an Italian painter and illustrator whose drawings of numerous Middle-earth creatures can be seen in Beasts of Tolkien: A Colouring Book and A Bestiary of Tolkien, both of which he co-authored in 2016, and Tolkien's World: A Fantasy Coloring Book (2015), to which he was the largest contributor. Mazzara was born in Milan, and has drawn pictures since before he learned to walk.[1]

His fantasy illustrations of evil creatures are of a notably ghoulish horror-style.
