Leprechaun


Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, I managed to get a leprechaun drawn, coloured, and put on merchandise in my Azure Lion Productions Zazzle Store. In keeping with the traditional lore that says leprechauns are shoemakers to the fairies, I have my leprechaun holding a hammer in one hand and one shoe in the other. It seems they work on only one shoe, never a pair. My leprechaun may be a bit jollier than the leprechauns of lore; they often seem to be of a rather sullen disposition, perhaps out of worry that foolish mortals will try to steal their gold.
