Nisse Picture

This is a nisse. Nisse are creatures from scandinavian mythology, similar to a brownie or a leprechaun. They would usually be a lot bigger than this, but again my inspiration comes from Humon, who drew this interpretation [link] but also from a book I read as a kid and half-remember. It was called Troll Fell, maybe? Anyway, in it there was a nisse who loved butter, which I think is hilarious. I think that anything that cleans your house in exchange for butter is absolutely hilarious, in fact. Also, excuse the sketchies peeking in at the edges.
