When snowflakes fall and chestnuts call, when rabbits and hats stay on their racks and people lie in wait When cozy cushions seem the go and steamy coffee pleases so, when the trees are bare and it’s cold out there, I’ll be standing by your gate.
image note: pencil sketch, hand inked lines, then coloured with water-colour pencils (at the last minute I decided not to use water). Post processing included darkening the line work for contrast and adding the text, which was done in gimp.
poem note: I wrote this back in 1991. It always made sense to me but it wouldn’t have made a lot of sense (in particular the bit about rabbits and hats) to anyone else without an image to go with it. So finally, here is that image. I still think I may do more with this… like digital colouring maybe.. or painting. Let me know what you think.
