Icelandic foxes


I dedicate this illustration to my sister. Because although she lives in Italy I know that she secretly misses the north now and then. I also know that she wishes she had a knitted fair isle sweater... or an icelandic or norwegian knitted one.
I wish I could see my sister more often. There are many things that only she understands, especially when I need someone to talk to. And well, skype-ing just isn't the same thing! Oh well, maybe she'll come and visit soon.

I had fun drawing this, it's the first things I've dared to scribble with my pencil in a while. But it felt good! It can't feel wrong when you're drawing knitted sweaters, foxes, mountains and cloudy skies... my favorite things :) I just have to work a little more with their faces, fix the fur and the eyes.

  1. Lovely illustration! The pattern in the foxes' sweaters look great. It inspired me to but a sweater just like that (found one from Benetton that will be mine as soon as I have the money, hehe).

    Hope you can see your sister soon. I understand you, there are some things just sisters understand...

    Got any idea for the "Blue-theme" yet? I'm working on the ideas for my picture :)

  2. Having a sister is a great blessing. Sisters really do have a secret language and a way of understanding each other.

  3. Love this illustration! Anything that has to do with Iceland, foxes, or cold/grey weather is a winner to me.

    I always wished I had a sister growing up...
