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 🙂
