Thomas the Leap Year sketching Elf 26 by D-Gee Thomas the Leap Year sketching Elf 26 by D-Gee
So at the loss of a cookie, Thomas gains a new friend….It has been a long road for this little Leap Year Sketching Elf... 29 days to be exact. He never made into the scary forest. But there is still too much adventuring left to go back to "doogins" now. After all, what would become of all the worlds chocolates and cakes? and that big hairy trader man, and poor Sampson! he's still out there somewhere!! all alone, and green...

Yes, there is far too much to do... he must prepare.

but thats....another story.

Doogins [doo-gins] The Elfish term for the 4 year hibernation cycle between leap years.



I Had a blast working on this story and Thomas. It was just a daily sketch jam that turned into something fun and spontaneous that I am grateful to have taken the time to do.

I hope you enjoyed it as well

Awww See ya on the next leap year Thomas! :wave: I'll miss ya!... God, you were so cute! :cries:

I hope with all my heart :pray: that Mr.Sampson :hexentanz: is somewhere around as lively as ever, perhaps looking for an adventure of his own and that his greenness is due to his natural coloration and not because he's all... :dead:-green! :ambulance:...
Hugh! :noes:...OMG! :nuu: Noooo!! Plz be well Mr.Sampson, take care of that spotted lil' (_l_) I wav U! :glomp:

Oh Dax, I really REALLY can't put in to words how much I enjoyed Thomas the Leap Year sketching Elf adventures, 'cuz U know, j'adore yer style, but this time the drawing+the comment shed an entirely new -AND- awesome light to this project, to the extent that it reminded me of how it was back when I was little and still believed in this kind of magic! BRAVO :clap:, I'll miss ya Thomas and THANK YOU Dax :smooch: is all I can say! :worship:

I just read through and looked at all the pictures again and I really think it could make a good children's book.

Sigh... I feel Thomas and I have grown with one another... To see him no more on a daily, well, that is something saddening, but yet it makes me think of where or what awaits him somewhere down the road!

Great adventure sir!
