The last week has been brought to you by the letter "gnome". My last two entries have explained that I'm going to be introducing a set of gnome paper dolls into the shop, similar to my zombie paper dolls
. Well, not really similar at all considering that one is covered in blood and the other is covered in whimsy. But, hey! They are both made of paper, right?
I just finished the gnomes' "Gardening Clothes." What garden is complete without gnomes? And so the logic follows, what gnome wardrobe is complete without some gardening duds? I created some hearty attire for digging and messing in the dirt, and will be painting a few simple spades and rakes for them too.
|Mom and Pop gnome, ready for...wow, I was going to|
write plowing and then I realized just how very awful that sounds.
Pruning. They're ready for pruning.
|The twins are ready to polish leaves, and pick a giant berry or two.|
|The chunky details of Mama Gnome's little apron.|
|I painted these to match daughter to mother....|
|...And father to son.|
This may call for "gardening hats" though I have not drawn any yet. I've saved designing a page of assorted pointed hats for the very end, as a totally dorky reward for myself. What can I say? It's the little things in life....
As usual, they are really very cute. Cannot imagine how the garden tools are going to look - send them on1ReplyDelete
I love the son's overalls. They're pretty much the best part! :DReplyDelete
In any case, the garden is likewise where anything hazardous can happen if a portion of the garden instruments were not kept. It ought to be the cultivator's propensity to assume liability on his stuff.ReplyDelete
