Blemish Gnome



The challenge this week from Illustration Friday is the word 'Phobia'.

Eeeeeeek !!!

Nobody likes Zits and Boils. Ever wonder where those skin discolorations and pus filled lumps come from ? Well guess who I glimpsed a year or so ago lurking in my backyard near the acorn tree and black-berry bushes.

The Blemish Gnome. Looks like a kinda dour fellow, but once you get to know him, you get ta realize that having acne is usually a sign of youthful skin. Once pimples disappear ya gotta watch out for Crows Feet, and I haven't seen the Crows Feet Goblin yet...although I've heard rumors she also lurks in Kalamazoo...
