Gimli Axe Wieldin Orc Slayin : Love at First Fight
Oh, Gimli, Giimli, Gimli. Where do I begin? Probably at the start. I was just a young lad, totally adrift in the cold hard reality of being a chubby, middle part rocking, crew socknwearing middle schooler. Who knew that ankle socks were the coolest types of socks you could wear? Who knew that rolling your boring, non-ankle socks down to the top of your kicks like mickey mouse was the exact opposite of cool? Not this guy. Needless to say, when my pops takes me and my sibs to go see a little movie called "The Fellowship of the Ring", explaining that it has something to do with wizards, elves and dwarves, I'm all for it. Never in my wildest dreams would I have anticipated the passion kindled in my heart as I sat in that dark theatre for all things LOTR, and most of all, Mr. Gimli himself. That axe wieldin', orc-slayin, affable dwarf was the bees-knees to my young impressionable self and has been embedded in my heart the same way his axe was in that uruk-hai's head in "The Two Towers" (extended version, of course). I digress. This is my attempt at using geometric (ish) shapes to create the coolest dwarf in all middle earth.
