Illustration Friday: Polar


Today, my family and I attended the Cherry Blossom Festival in San Francisco's Japantown. Riding the city bus in order to get there (since the parking was horendus), it gave me the opportunity to generate ideas for this week's IF theme: "Polar". I observed one dapper guy carrying a business bag similar to the one pictured above. I drew this drawing while enjoying the sunny skies and spectacular San Francisco weather. It was forcasted to have rained today, but it didn't.
I considered myself fortunate to be living in an area with such a great climate. You see, I never lived in an area where temperatures drop below freezing, let alone snow! I imagined how it would be to be walking to work in the snow. The background is the portion of Japantown that I sketched while waiting for the parade to begin. We all had a memorable time thanks to the great weather!
