Snape’s Ridiculorum presents this GUIDE for the under-informed. Your friend lives in Florida. Or perhaps the tropics. Or maybe you’ve been on vacation to a dry and sunny place for so long that you’ve forgotten some aspects of Traditional Winter. Learn (or re-learn) aspects of snowman anatomy, variations of apparel, habitat and commonality. There’s a handy spotting chart, and a snapshot of a snowman escaping one of his natural enemies. Be INformed. Be safe.

How to Spot a Snowman (13x19 print)

  • • Ink drawing & watercolor, scanned and printed with archival inks on heavyweight watercolor paper

    • Size ~9 1/2"x 13" or 13"x19", with lots of room for trimming for mat and/or frame

    • Inks are water soluable, so keep away from moisture (including rain, sippy cups, and salivating pets)


    I work almost exclusively in my sketchbooks, in pencil or pen or crow's quill, then scan in the drawing and apply color digitally (color involves lots of trial and error). I like to work in watercolor vs. digital watercolor, but it's painstaking and somewhat stressful, so I need to keep working at it...
