The January not-so-blues

Every year, without fail, I forget how cold January is.

Once I’m passed new year, I’m thinking about Spring and Easter, baby lambs and bunnies, daffodils and hot crossed buns, and then I remember there is still the rest of winter to get through – the grey, misty and cold bit, not the festive bit.

So, I made an effort to focus on some wintery illustrations to start the year, and to celebrate the two hours of light snow that dusted the garden a week or so ago!

If I ever were to actually leave the house, I would definitely want to be wearing something warm and stylish, like a jade green coat or a purple bobble hat.

I know it’s not very cool to admit, but I don’t drink coffee, so I’m imagining that this is hot chocolate, with a swirl of whipped cream and marshmallows squished inside the lid.

Trying to continue with my children’s illustrations, I saw an adorable winter walk photo pop up on my instagram feed, so I had to recreate it in my sketch book! I didn’t even realise that I’d given him the same coat as my windy day kite flyer!

January seems to have the rep of being a depressing month, so I wanted to fill it with cold weather adventures!

And finally, my crystal ball illustration to help me try to see what’s to come this year!

One thing that¬†will definitely¬†happen this year, is I will finally start selling prints of my illustrations. I’m looking into the different options at the moment, so will share an update as soon as I know more! I hope you’re keeping warm in this chilly winter weather :)
