31 Monsters in 31 Days: Day 12 Gnome of Girona

Gnome of Girona - Copyright 2012 Kevin P. Johnson
This weird little guy was actually found and caught in 1989 in Girona, Cantalonia (Spain) and lived for about 24 hours after it was captured. The creature was said to be a blue hairless being with what seemed to be a tumor on its head. The Gnome of Girona (Gnomo de Girona) was found by campers who heard some low volume moans near their camp. The creature was small and his captors said that it moved fast and made a sound "a kind of squeak similar to an old man's laughter."

Scientist have said that this creature is a hoax and is very likely the remains of some other prematurely born animal such as a calf or even a deformed rabbit.

This drawing is done with Copic Markers, Prismacolor Markers and Sharpie Marker on approximately 8.5" x 11" Bristol Board.

That's the weirdest Smurf ever,
