After seeing a Tolkien calendar with Tim Kirk's art, they responded to a call for artists by Ballantine. Their art was well-liked, and they were commissioned to illustrate the 1976 Ballantine calendar.

More calendars followed: 1977, 1978 - and they sold a record one million calendars. They moved their scope to other large projects, but kept producing Tolkien artwork. In 2001, Greg and Tim Hildebrandt: The Tolkien Years was published by Greg's son, Gregory Jr. Following the release of this collection, Ballantine began to reissue their popular Tolkien Calendars starting in 2002.

After a struggle with diabetes, Tim Hildebrandt passed away on June 11, 2006.
