Illustration Friday: Spring

Spring...the loveliest of seasons and, sadly, the shortest, at least in Toronto. But for those few weeks when buds start a-buddin' and people slowly discard the 3 layers of clothing that just barely got them through the winter, there is amazing transformation all around us. The sidewalks start filling up again, kids start playing stickball and people are finding more excuses to get out of the office. Glorious time!

This was a quickie illustration today. I was imagining the bud being somewhat like a hibernating bear, and nothing says YAWN like a season's worth of sleep. On a side note, never disturb a bear (or a bud, for that matter) when they're hibernating. Deep sleep makes one sensitive.

Great imagination, I also love your monster. Gonna have to try those safety pins! Why do I think the dryer monster already has a strategy in place for them?
