He is worldwide known for this book but there are not many people who know that he actually was one of the worlds best Wild life painters.
Because of his realistic style of painting in combination with the fantastic story of the Gnome book, I was convinced he really experienced this close encounter with the Gnomes.
I still am .......
There is another artist I admire a lot.
He is French and his name is Jean Baptiste Monge.He is one of today's best Fantasy Artists I've seen.
I'm very inspired by his Gnomes.
This is his Blog : http://www.jbmonge.com/
Okay, so once in a while I have to make a Gnome and these two Artists are my inspiration.
He is hiding behind the little Owl because he is naked, but I'm working on his clothes.
