I very much enjoyed drawing this snow covered garden scene.

During the beginning of the long winter nights here in Iceland, many people cover their trees with winter lights. It makes the dark nights appear more bright.

We had the first snowflakes flying around here yesterday. Way too early if you ask me.

When the little fly woke up again and looked out of her hole in her tree, the garden looked weird. A white blanket was covering everything.

What had happened?

The mountains around Reykjavik are all covered in snow this morning. Winter has certainly arrived.

Inktober Day 12 – Slippery

Seems I forgot to post day 12 of Inktober. I am also still missing the last 2 days of Inktober as last weekend did not leave any time for drawing. They will follow soonish.

I haven´t been tubing in a long time but it is so much fun! Therefore this Capybara ventured out of its natural habitat to give it a try.

Have you tried it?

A Winter´s Tale

Winter storms are still going strong here. I started to enjoy watching the snow hitting the window and got accustomed to cosy indoor life.

I am currently still working on a series of illustrations for a friend. But in the meantime I thought I put this little story of my own together.

A Winter´s Tale

On his stroll around the forest Mr. Fox was looking for a good spot to relief himself. Not paying attention of where, he just went about his business.

Before Mr Fox new what happened, he found himself in the big black mouth of the snowman who tried to swallow him whole.

But after the first surprise, Mr Fox started to put up a fight.

On it went. The struggle continued for a while, but eventually Mr Fox was able to free himself and ended up victorious.

The End.

Have you build a snowman?

We are currently having that terrible winter weather that I hate. It snows one day, only to be followed by heavy rain the day after…. So no chance to enjoy the snow or build a snowman. Therefore an ink version has to do for now.

Have you build a snowman this winter?

Inktober 2019 Day 11 – Snow

Snow is not here yet but winter is definitely on the way. We just will have to make the best out of it I guess.

Keeping Your Cool Like a Snowman

Or something like it. I was not planning on a winter scene when I started inking this, otherwise I would have put some woolen socks and sweater on her…

Oh well. We are off to the countryside over the New Year´s with no internet. Only  a bunch of books and plenty of wine and cheese! Really looking forward to it.

Thank you to everyone who supported me with their encouragement,  positive comments and likes throughout the year. It was a pleasure to get back into drawing and also see and feel improvements.  I will definitely keep on going. Let´s see what the New Year brings. This one was certainly one with many ups and downs. But as “they” say, if you hit rock bottom it can only go up again.

Happy New Year!
