winter days


I haven't particiapted in Illustration Friday in soooooo long, but I saw the word this week was "prepare" and I thought a winter illo would be perfect. These kiddos are preparing a snowman and they are prepared for snowy weather with their coats, scarves and mittens.

This illo is also perfect for the weather we are having here in Seattle. We don't get a lot of snow here, so when it does snow alot, it usually sends the city into a panic. Schools close at the drop of a flake, cars slide off roads then get abandoned, buses don't run on schedule, etc. It's not pretty, folks! And, tonight we are predicted to get anywhere from 6-15" of the fluffy white stuff! Are you prepared Seattlites? The forecast calls for SNOW!
