Snow Day

My illustration for the January/ February SCBWI “Draw This!” contest. “Snow Day” was the prompt word. I really wanted to express the exhilaration one feels after waking up and seeing snow cascading outside. You don’t have to go to school… and the day will be filled with games, playing and wonder. I chose bears as the subject because they should be hibernating. Momma bear is clearly annoyed at her young ones jumping for joy on the bed. This is a digital illustration, I included a lot of texture and pattern for visual interest.
