Hot Cocoa, First Snow & Cozy in the Studio

Hot Cocoa, First Snow & Cozy in the Studio

Looking out the studio window at the beautiful snowfall, it's definitely time to start the daily hot cocoa tradition.  Ok.  Really, it's more of an obsession for me this time of year. I like to make it the "old fashioned" way when I can. The ingredients are simple and wholesome. The possibilities for variations are numerous.

As a hardcore fan of the DIY process, when I couldn't find an adult coloring book as a gift for a friend that I would want to color, I decided to make my own.  The illustrations are all free hand drawn on 9x12" white drawing paper with the awesome Pentel Energel pens in black.  I wore out two in the making of this collection of drawings and am well on my way to emptying a third. None of the illustrations in the book were first sketched with pencil.  I just take the pen to paper and go. There's no room...
