polar ices

I'm so chuffed, I even managed a morning sketch on a Saturday. Stuart gave me the ice cream van idea. The one outside our house, Ali Baba, is very very loud, and waits until it gets right under my window to give a sharp blast of a German oompa song, and give me a heart attack.

Some updates:
I've been selected as Featured Illustrator for the UK's Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators. Hooray!
I've also posted two more book reviews:
The Tinderbox, illustrated by someone who's a fantastic discovery for me, Russian illustrator Bagram Ibatoulline;
and The Animals' Christmas Carol, not so much my kind of book, but Helen Ward paints animals better than almost anyone.
edit: And I'm sure I had fellow Seattlite David Lasky's polar bear comic in mind when I did this picture!
