Mr Gnome and I are as one in our enthusiasm for the work of gifted Leeds-based artist/illustrator Simon Smith.
The image above is the first in a series of pictures to illustrate the nineteen 'Stations of the Resurrection' - a kind of 'sequel' to the traditional Stations of the Cross.
This sequence will pick out key incidents in the New Testament narrative of the events from the resurrection of Jesus to his Ascension.
In a bold step, Si has decided to interpret the story as if it were happening in Leeds in 2009.
Were Mr Gnome to pen his autobiography (literary agents, form an orderly queue, please), he would, quite naturally, invite Mr Smith to provide the illustrations
You can explore Si's work through the Proost website.
