Two things are preventing more posting:
1. I am making secret things for a secret swap. They are cool! But just in case the intended recipients happen by here, I cannot post them yet. Also,
2. I have a regular full-time office job and things are rather hectic and stressful at the moment. Arrrgh!
However, I would like to post to Paint Party Friday with these two pen and ink art cards. I like to think they both have a touch of zen to them. Hello, PPF peeps!
A Gnome Called Figgum lives in this tree in the Spring when his wife goes to stay with her sister. The rest of the year he rents it to small-statured tourists including the occasional exotic-location-wedding guest.
The beaked fellow is Sebastian, who belongs to the Messenger Guild. Most reliable small package delivery on the planet!
Thanks so much for stopping in and I hope everyone has a restful weekend. Unless you’d prefer the more active sort of weekend. If so, good luck and I shall watch from my lawn chair*, sipping tea. ;)
*I don’t actually have a lawn chair.
Love your drawings, especially the messenger. Valerie
Like Valerie, I also love your drawings, but I seriously want to visit the well from which your stories arise! Figgum is possibly the most perfect gnome name of all time, and it perfectly suits a (temporary) bachelor who is otherwise a landlord. So clever, you are!
The details in your work continue to amaze me. Who thinks to put swirls in a tire? And slats in goggles? YOU!
I love to observe the increasing intensity of your WIP shots. You’re a wonder!
Great story and love, love your artwork. Happy PPF, Annette x
Great story and adorable illustrations…I love your artwork!
Beautiful artwork. The messenger is just adorable. Happy PPF.
Be patience with the work, I’m in one of those periods…
I love the house :-)
Oh, I love Sebastian. He looks so wise…. Amazing how much you get done with a fulltime job!
Your art cards are bright and beautiful, Cindy.
Wowowow I love your art. The back story is amazing too. I thought maybe Sabastian lived in the house. Very nice. Hope work settles down a bit too.
Such a fabulous name ‘Figgum’ which goes for his tree as well. Sebastian does have a purposeful look in his eye. Great art and wonderful stories as always.
SEBAStian is the best ever! I just love him, he cheers me up with hiz zany face and goggles. Cheers!
What a wonderful post!!! Love both of your illustrations – they are so sweet.
Love the Gnome Treehouse……your “little homes” are always a delight! Keep them coming!
And big beaked Sebastian…..adore his aviator glasses. Hope you had a nice artful holiday……
You can borrow one of my lawn chairs, Cindy. Or we could sit in my gazebo.
I love Figgum’s little home away from home. Are Sebastion’s services very expensive? One can never have too may postal carrier options.
Cindy, I like the aviator goggles on Sebastian the Messenger. Looks steampunk like. I remember that series of house you made a few months ago. I like you create home designs.
