Sketchbook: ERG

Magical woodland creatures filled my sketchbooks back in the '80s inspired by the huge craze caused by the Brian Froud and Alan Lee book Fairies and the book Gnomes by Wil Huygen and Rien Poortvilet. I haven't doodled fairies very much in recent years but had reason to this past week helping a friend with a project.

This is Erg. He's a bitter fairy. Half goblin and half pixie. His only joy in life is clubbing anything in the head with dried up flower stalks who invade his personal space.

  1. I adored the "Gnomes" book. My mother found it for me and it was one of my constant favorites to look thru. I must say I love this bitter fairy and hope you have a whole colony that you will share!
