Liraifaerdeon Blackbark often had been told that it's a bad idea to offend wizards. He never believed it, right until the moment after he called this mage a 'garden gnome'. This image happened because Candy was looking for images for a 'cookie' tour. There was the ever-present idea of a cookie with elf ears, but on its own that was a bit boring. Those runes on the wizard's robe in his world probably show which guild of wizards he belongs to, but by pure coincidence it looks like something written in my attempt at Sütterlin script, and reads 'I really look like a weird garden gnome' ;) Ink and greytones in PhotoImpact, 30th December 2004.
