Sketchbook Project: Creative Tuesday Edition

"If you hadn't lost track of time... you'd be home by now"

The theme for Creative Tuesday over at Mr. Toast's blog is "New Year".  Since I have to keep plugging away at The Sketchbook Project, I thought it would be fun to combine the two challenges.

It is hard not to think about the passing of time when a new year rolls around.  As a result, Salvador Dali's "The Persistence of Memory" seemed like the perfect painting to base today's drawing on.


(The theme for my sketchbook is "...you'd be home by now".  If you'd like to find out more about my inspiration, you can find it in this post.)

Be sure to check back... a lot more gnome drawings are on the way!
