No Place Like Gnome

It's my early lab day and I am SO SLEEPY. I just want to die. From lack of sleep.

I'm experimenting with Gimp today, because I have a need to draw a gangsta lawn gnome using vector graphics. It's taking me a long time because I am getting sleepier and sleepier, but it's turning out better than I'd hoped, given that I don't normally use Gimp or the work mouse for drawing.

I also found this great lawn gnome wallpaper here. It's been making me think. About lawn gnomes. Except I am so tired that they are starting to look at me funny.

Finished up the gangsta gnome.

I'll have to scan the one from my sketchbook. Neil thinks the non-digital gnome is better. Still, not bad for my first go at Gimp vector graphics.

Since I've stumbled on some of the cartooning blogs out there, I've been experimenting with making slightly cartoonier people.
