Though it is October and the strawberries are long gone out of season, I could not help myself with this little hedge hock for one of my inktober drawings. I have wanted to draw a hedge hock for a while, but haven’t found a purpose for it. So here he is – let’s just say that he is enjoying a very warm and delayed autumn. He doesn’t care that it is October because he has his belly full of sweet berries (:
Inktober 4 2016 – The sweet delight of eating berries
December 21st – Kissed under the mistletoe. Since Christmas is the celebration of love and tradition, hopefully the traditional meaning of the mistletoe can bring together new love or enforce old love between people. This is the 21st illustration in my Christmas coloring card series.
December 9th – In northern Europe we go to the forests and collect all kinds of greens, cones, nuts and berries. Then we make our own Christmas decoration with a countdown candle. This is one of my most cherished memories as a kid. It is a tradition to spend time with the family or our loved ones. It is a creative outlet that we spend the rest of the month looking at and remembering the time we spent together. This is the ninth illustration of my 24 illustrated Christmas card series.
December 8th –One of my favorite things about the holiday season is all the warm Christmasy drinks. Chai Lattes, cinnamon, nuts, berries and small tea candles. What else can we ask for? It’s cold outside. Take a break and take your best friend to a Cafe and enjoy each other’s company. This is the eighth illustration of my 24 illustrated Christmas card series. Cards will be abatable on Etsy soon.
