A Very Small Wizard

By Justin Gerard



A Very Small Wizard

Whom I offended when I met him on a path in the old forest. 

I kicked a stone at him and yelled, "stay out of my way! I'm a very important person with no time for little people who run about in their pajamas."

He ducked the stone and mumbled a wild curse. Then disappeared among the leaves.  

When I got home I had a terrible case of poison ivy.

    I'm currently working on a drawing with a young mage myself, but yours is much cuter and has a cooler staff :)

  3. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say this story is fabricated, but I believe the poison ivy part. Regardless, that drawing is great!

  10. Very cute! Love the eyes, clothing, staff, general design but its the 'flattened' aspect of the tail that is best. Wonderful work!
