Hibernate- Illustration Friday

I drew the first thing that came to my mind. And yes, it is based on personal experience. But I am sure every woman has found herself in similar situation at least once in her life! When everything gets on top of her, the dishes need washing, the children need attention, the work is overwhelming, the money is short, the husband is annoying and the life in general is a bit of a hard work.


Then we sit on the sofa with a cup of tea and hibernate. We wrap ourselves in a warm blanket, pull up our favourite old socks and stare in a random dot in front of us, thinking of nothing, feeling nothing and wanting nothing..... Luckily we snap out of it pretty quickly. We don't have the luxury of hibernating for too long :)))

Those dishes won't get washed by themselves!

  3. Been there! Or perhaps I'm there now. Blanket - check! Staring - check! Dirty dishes - actually, the dishes are clean. But all the rest I can relate to!

  11. I love your colour combination. The blue and red/orange are really effective together, and really emphasize the cold winter coming. Great illustration! I love it.
