Last one of 2017!

Happy New Year, everyone! Thank you so all the likes and follows and lovely comments!

(And thank you, honestly, to “Trollhunters” for inspiring me to do this series! I don’t think I’ve said so before, but the treatment of Gnomes on that show is what got me to dedicate each Sunday to a more positive, spiritual new piece of Gnome art. I’m so glad I did, and I hope you all have been enjoying them too – and please do check out that show, Gnomes aside, it is a very fun story and does Trolls justice!)

Here’s to making next year even more Gnomish!


"Supply Run," ink and colored pencil on grey paper

For my father-in-law’s recent birthday. He likes birds (yay!) and makes some very beautiful gemstone-inlaid drop spindles for my wife’s shop, so here’s a feathered friend getting him some stone chips with which to do that work 🙂

This is also drawn on grey paper instead of white. I got a pad of it for my birthday, and I LOVE it. It takes white colored pencil gorgeously.

"Batties on Board," ink on paperFor my bat-loving Mother-in-law this past Mother’s Day 🙂

"Off to Knit Night," roughly 4 by 6, colored pencil and ink.

Another bat piece for my soon-to-be-Mother-in-Law for this past Mother’s Day 🙂

Featuring, by the way, a Llayover Tote from my fiancee’s fiber arts shop, Llady Llama Fiber Co. (she designed the bags, and Mom makes them. I use one for my art supplies, its awesome).

Also – Llady Llama Fiber Co. will be vending at the Central New York Fiber Artists & Producers Festival this weekend in Bouckville, NY. Stop by if you can, I’ll be there helping my llady out too!

Happy Mother's Day to all the hardworking, awesome moms out there!
