This illustration probably took me over a year to actually finish, because I gave up on it for a while and got busy with other things. But I'm very happy I got back to it. It was a lot of fun to add all the detail. I was definitely inspired by Jill Barklem's Brambly Hedge stories that I read as a child. If you don't know these books, I strongly suggest finding them. They are wonderful. Anyway, it feels likes it's been a long winter, and with spring around the corner (I hope) here's one last cozy, wintery thing to enjoy.
