Fun leads to smiles. Smiles lead to laughter. Laughter leads to happiness." Seems like most artists do a clown painting at some point in their careers. I just had to put my twist on it!

Unfortunately, some of the body parts he had to work with were from the late Jonathan Storm, AKA The Human Torch. Hilarity ensued when the creature kept trying to run away from it's own hand...

It lies behind stars and under hills, And empty holes it fills. It comes first and follows after, Ends life, kills laughter. In The Annotated Hobbit, Tolkien’s description of Gollum was compiled from multiple sources as follows: "a slimy little creature, not larger than Bilbo: thin, with a large head for his size; large, protuberant eyes; a long, skinny neck; and thin, lank hair. His skin was very white, and evidently he work black garments [with pockets]. (He was never naked). His hands were long and his feet were webby, with prehensile toes."
