Gnome Garden Clothes

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....
