What was your inspiration?
I actually made the bird to go along with another gnome, one that will soon be up here as well. It was too big, so I sat it on this gnome's arm. It looked like a hunting falcon.
What are you most proud of?
Coming up with stories.... the full caption for this one is: Rex was a good hunting bird as long as you didn't mind a steady diet of earthworms.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Let your imagination soar! Experiment with the techniques. Each gnome will come out very different no matter what I do. Let it become what it's going to become!
