Illustration Friday {Rain}



Living in the Lower Mainland of BC, I've come to accept that it can rain a lot. Just to give you an idea: last January we had 26 days of unrelenting rain. We saw nothing but grey showers, streaky rain and then some light drizzle. If you want rain, we've got every variety. It got to the point where I wasn't sure if we were living on land or under the sea. Some days I'd be waiting for the bus in a torrential downpour and wonder if I'd start to see fish swim by. My friend, Wendy, used to draw these silly fish all the time, and it would make me chuckle to think of seeing one of those pass by. I thought it would be even funnier to see the reactions of serious business people if that actually happened!

This is great! I love the expression on the man and on the little helicopter fish! What a really vivid way of illustrating the relentless rain. The background and atmosphere you created here are wonderful as well...very wet and dripping. Wonderful work!
