The Imp of Very Small Lost Things

...sitting on the house key. He can see all the lost things with his many eyes, he can sniff them out with his long nose, but he won't tell you where they are. I'm thinking of doing an alternate calendar, which will just be black and white characters from this blog.

Must be my Canadian upbringing - couldn't help thinking he was wearing a knitted cap on his nose.

cheers, Susan.

What an unpleasant creature. Convincingly drawn.

I hope you don't think I am boring now becasue I am saying the same things about divig.

This looks exactly like one of my diving students. A rich kid.

jude said...

steve said...

Oh wow, love the hairiness of this guy! Yes, I swear Iv'e run into himbefore unfortunately. Lovely job Susan!

j. said...

a calendar sounds like a marvelous idea!

I think a calendar from you would be a really good thing because my birthday month, july, never ever has anything good in any calendar I have seen.
not even ones about "cute puppies" or "cuddly kittens" somehow they find less than cute kittens and puppies to put for july.
but, since pretty much all of your art is magnificent, my birthday month, along with the other 11 months, would just have to be good : D

Whoo! He's just a little bit disturbing.

Great idea for the calendar.

Mischievous and slightly insane!

I could do with him round the flat. As long as he's sittin' on the lost item, shouldn't be hard to spot, heh, heh...

That would be a great calendar.This little fella is deadly cool.Given his impressive title, do you think you could you ask him if he has seen my brain anywhere?

Hey I think one of those little guys lives in my house. I lost my house key for a couple months. Finally found it in the pocket of my winter coat. Can't believe I just admitted that. :)

So this is the guy who hides stuff - or rather won't answer when I ask "Where are the car keys?! I'm late!" I like your imagination, my dear.

OMG! I KNOW he's been around to my place! Second home I'm guessing. V. naughty but oozing personality. : ) ~ Alisa

Jasmine said...

I love this one. I'm not sure why but he reminds me of Jeffrey Hillary Boob from the Yellow Submarine....

William Keckler said...

would love to collab with you sometime...especially on a book for adults masquerading as a children's book...

ArtSparker said...

Thanks, William. That is a really wonderful compliment. Right now I am trying to maintain focus for the projects I have on hand, which is challenging as I get overly attracted to too many ideas.

Gavin Goo said...

This is really beautiful linework! Enjoy all the details in this :)

jenny2write said...

Send him out in my direction. I'm always losing small things. Somehow he reminds me of a not-cold snowman.

lettuce said...

ooo i'd put in an order for such a calendar!

is it he who is also responsible for sometimes suddenly replacing a lost item back into its original location, just 5 minutes after you checked right there?
