Mr Gnome likes to think he has an 'eye' for talent. So when a young artist sends him samples of his or her work, Mr G becomes very excited.
He says: 'Here I am admiring some delightful drawings by Paddy from Cheshire. Paddy has chosen a tip-top subject for his work: ME!
'I feel very honoured to have been captured on paper with such energy and confidence. Hurrah for Paddy!'
Mr Gnome rather likes the idea of being a 'muse' for artists - and is open to all offers.
