A gnome on his way back to his hole, after a trip to the local library. This is from an old idea that I sketched back in 1998, and has been sitting in my sketch book unused. My 'Cycle' series was going to be a lot different initially, and have eight different characters, instead of the two I used. I thought this guy was cute, and deserved to come to life by himself. This one is dedicated to my friend Mark Jaruzel, My gnomish gnostic pal since grade school. I hope he finds the wisdom he searches for.
