It is quiet, and all the city’s a snow globe this bright morning

I’ve been given a snow day from work on account of this storm (referred to by meteorologists as a Bombogenesis, Bomb Cylone, and Winter Storm Greyson). It has settled in Brooklyn in the form of a persistent and blanketing snowfall out the window all morning, and not a soul around.

It inspired me to make this little animation from my ink drawings back in October. And now I’ll try to get some work done.

The book featuring these and other drawings can be found at Lulu.com.

The music is Autumn in New York, by the Bill Charlap Trio. So good.

  1. I love the video!!! What’s the music? (Of course, I would ask…)

    Have you ever illustrated any children’s books?

    So glad you are sharing your work with the rest of us!

    1. Oh! The music is Autumn in New York, by the Bill Charlap Trio. I’ll add that to the post.
      I’ve only illustrated children’s books that I wrote and made for my nieces and nephews. But I’m interested in it. One of my heroes is Tove Jansson, who wrote and illustrated the Moomin series. Also Edward Gorey, not for children so much 🙂

    1. Thanks, Robert. And yes, since my return, I can’t say I’ve noticed much difference to upstate! Today was bad outdoors but charming from inside- my company had a snow day, so I did this, then did some work from home 🙂

      I saw some sad videos of flooding around Boston and P-Town. Climate Change is hella scary.

Say some words!
