Illustration Friday "Breezy"

"I might go for a paddle"

Growing up near the British coastline, I would often be amazed at the amount of people on the beach front, no matter the weather. Usually it would be the older folks stepping out boldly into the blustery elements. Nothing like an icy blast of sea air to clear out the cobwebs, eh?

  6. Great work Chris! I enjoyed just looking at all the little touches that you put in here to really give it the "Breezy" look. Like the guy standing on one foot, his hat tilted, a few hairs sticking out etc... and so funny! I love the look on the dog's face. Nice!!!!

  8. I always remember my grandfather doing that. He seemed to have this natural defense mechanism against cold water. English blood.
