I have been working on an idea for a picture book called "William's Winter Stew" for longer than I would care to admit. The story includes one boy and hundreds of snowmen. The snowmen are the reason it is taking so long. I have been working on a character design that is simplistic, but at the same time allowing me to make each snowman an individual. I am envisioning a very minimalistic design, because as the story progresses the illustrations are going to get very busy.
I have doodled so many snowmen over the past couple of years!
Today, however, I think I drew "the one"!
I am really happy with how this little guy turned out. If you want to know why he is wearing a crown, you will need to read the story.
