Gnome doodle by Amy Crook

Gnome doodle by Amy Crook

I keep a little notebook of cheap blank paper by my bed, with a mechanical pencil stuck in the spiral binding. This is something I drew last night, while drinking Zen green tea liqueur, eating Mother’s lemon cookies, and listening to Naomi talk about marketing for artists. Go figure.

  1. Hi Amy–

    Not that you asked, but I find your Gnome interesting on many levels, but I’ll offer 2 unsolicited observations(hope no unbrage taken)
    –his hands appear to be bound behind his back
    –there’s whimsy/hope present in the form of happy face in pocket.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Amy says:

    In a way, I asked by posting!

    – His hands are meant to be tucked in close at his sides, aka the artist is lazy and didn’t wanna draw them. 😉

    – And yes, I wanted to show that the grumpy little gnome had a softer side by giving him a happy little pet.

    Thank you for commenting!

    He looks rather eager to me, rather than grumpy. I won’t speculate as to his hands, but I have my suspicions.

    Clearly I need to put “be less lazy about hands” in my notes for future doodling. 😉
