My Good Buddy, Carrot Nose by Steven Novak

This is the image I used for both the front and back cover of “Snow Man is my Friend.” It’s simple, but it’s kind of sweet at the same time.


Did I just type, “It’s simple but it’s kind of sweet?”

Who am I, Rachel Ray?

This also marks the first drawing of the actual snow man from the book. No doubt some of you were thinking, “Why in the hell did he title a book Snow Man is My Friend if there isn’t a snow man in it?”

    nice, i really like the texture in the kid’s hair, the snow…..I did notice that while the snowman has no arms, a twiggish tree sits mocking him in the background….“want some arms? neener neener neener!” ;)

  • I know…that was mean of me wasn’t it? ;) (You win the award for funniest response to a piece I’ve ever had. WELL DONE!)

    No, Carrot Nose is MY buddy. MINE!

    ahem Great drawing btw! Love the starkness of it and shading =)

  • Don’t worry, you can be his friend to. He’s honestly not all that picky about who he calls friends because, well…umm…he’s not alive. ;)

    You are so good at shading. Im glad its not winter anymore though. Im a summer gal. Great drawing.

  • I don’t have to worry about winters anymore since I moved to California, so I’m pointing and laughing at you in all your coldness. ;)
