Winter checklist

This is not the first time I rely on a snowglobe as a concept to illustrate a story. I've done it before. I just love these artifacts. Visually, they can be a metaphor for so many things: safety, protection, experimentation. In this case the story dealt with house maintenance in the winter months. And what better way to keep the house safe from the storm than having a glass shield over it!

  1. I love the snowdome illustration. There was a snowdome exhibition here recently of snowdomes made by artists and printmakers. My friend knows where to get the stuff to make them & she made one for an exhibition we were both in.
