Illustration Friday Cold

I almost instantly knew what I wanted to do for this I.F. - I wanted to use a photo of me in some form or other. It was taken outside, in the snow, I was 3 years old at the time and packed in layers of winter clothing.

I decided to make a drawing of it, because I think I should draw more! So I did, and combined it with a photo I took of my parents' garden a few years ago. The 2 elements are put together in Photoshop.

Doesn't she look cute?? (I find it difficult to think of her as me!) All bundled up and ready to have fun in the snow!

I'm not sure I'm completely happy with the 'coldness' of it. But I like the original drawing, so I really should stop being so critical!
