Snow and Rain

I really like the place where I currently live with my girlfriend and our cat. It's a small 1880s working-class street, with a common garden in the middle, surrounded by two peaceful waterways.

To celebrate the holidays and the fact that our little street turned 125 last year (if I'm not mistaken), we had a little drink in december, so I did this illustration for an invitation.

But no matter how charming your street might be, snow is a rare thing in Belgium during this time of the year, and rain was poring down that day. And to make things even worse, the water pipes were renewed earlier that week, resulting in one big mud-pool:

  Oh well! We still had fun!
