Finished my piece, Christmas in July in August
you can view the full and final piece by clicking the image below

Every year I attend a themed Summer BBQ party and this year (and every year) I’m asked to create the illustration to go on the cups for the party.  My theme was “Christmas in July in August” and immediately a snowman came to my mind. I worked on some sketches and came up with a snowman holding a drink and bbq’ing! I decided to use this as my Day 15 project.

This task was given to me a few weeks ago, but I had to keep in on hold (from sharing) until after the party and until I had some pictures to share! Here are some pictures from the party.

Of course being me I had to smile proudly with my illustration on the cup 😀

…and so the list continues

    What a fun illo! I love how he’s leaning away from the heat of the grill, & keeping cool with a beverage, but puddling just the same!! Hope you had fun & that the cups were a big hit!!!
