Illustration Friday Phenomenon and Sunday sketches

Hi everyone, thought I would create a Christmas themed piece this week as I really felt like doing something different from what I've been doing lately.

In some parts of the world a hot Christmas would be a phenomenon, but it's the norm in Australia! I grew up on the other side of the world so deep down I think that a snowy cold, even rainy Christmas will feel normal to me but I must admit, I do enjoy Christmas over here. It's all about bbq's and trips to the beach and summer holidays. I'm looking forward to doing just that as we finish up for the year at school and have the huge 7 week or so summer holidays. So this little snowman represents an Aussie Christmas!!! :0)
