My friend Lauralynn Elliott is working on a supernatural horror story that features a garden gnome come to life. I’m totally intrigued, and can’t wait to read the story. It also reminded me of a picture my friend Kate Bateman — the source of my Otherworld Inspiration series of pictures — sent me after our walk last fall in Portland’s Forest Park.
At the time, I just put this picture in a folder, partly because I needed to ask Kate to tell me more about how she did it. I had trouble telling if it was a photo or a drawing, which is a cool effect, but kind of hard to talk about on my blog!
So I asked Kate how she came up with this gnome picture, and here is what she told me. “
I hope you enjoyed today’s dose of Otherworld Inspiration. You can check out other pictures from this series on the Otherworld Inspiration tab of my blog.
