garden gnome

This was my submission for the Doodlers Anonymous showcase sponsored by Tom Bihn.  Go over there and vote for it, the garden gnome will be most grateful.

The story behind it:

“I have been reading a Hundertwasser text called the garden gnome where he says the garden gnome is a reminder of how we used to talk to the grass and the birds and we no longer know how. The travel theme made me think about the film Amelie and how she convinces her father to travel the world by stealing his garden gnome and having a friend send postcards with the gnome around the world. I dream of traveling around speaking to the birds and the grass and the people and I’d love to send my friends postcards with a funny -yet deep- character that goes around clothed with whatever he finds in his journey.“
