I really enjoyed working on this drawing. It's not often that I get to just read a story and come up with an illustration to enhance it. I would love to do more of this kind of work in the future. Also, since I knew it would be printed in full color, it gave me a chance to try a new rendering method for snow, which was to overlay a sheet of dots (drawn with a sharpie and a lightbox) and just color them white with Photoshop. It was MUCH faster than The Basewood Method, but I still think I probably spent about an hour moving around individual snowflakes, to avoid weird tangents. That stuff is important!
Lastly, here is another gag that was originally published in Nickelodeon Magazine way back in 2006. This was my third one, and as you can see here, it shows how much I love a good pun!
