This quick sketch is of an unemployed elf. I am reading Andrew Loomis's book FUN WITH A PENCIL. I am enjoying it and trying out some of the exercises.
I wonder what those elves do after those long and tiring days of Christmas picking and packing toys. And how do they THEN manage to load the sleigh, ride along and THEN assist Santa as he put out all sorts of goodies to the children of the world anyway!
Well, I don't know about you, but to me he sure looks worn, hagged and just a tab bit worried :)
