This little guy was done as a request for a future collaboration – more info to come!
When I was asked to draw up a leprechaun, one strong image stood out in my mind. My mom had this coloring book when I was a kid that had the coolest drawings in it – elves, gnomes, faeries, mermaids – my favorite was on the title page – this little hobbit like guy sitting against a tree smoking his pipe. I’ve drawn things based on this image before but never really did anything with them. When I sat down to draw a leprechaun, I knew I had to base it off this image! (If only I could remember the artist that did this coloring book…) So, here he is with his pot o’ gold, his pipe, and his St. Patrick’s day cheer! It was loads of fun to tdraw this guy!
