1. The Inuit
This is a drawing I did recently of an Inuit man. I drew it from the DK book Human, which is a wonderful book with anything and everything about humans and all of their various races. The perfect intro to an alien visiting Earth!
2. Polar Bears
Here is a beautiful watercolor of a polar bear from JenniferLaBellaArt on Etsy. Her shop is full of so many beautiful illustrations of the north and its lovely wildlife.

3. Arora Borealis
This interesting piece of art, by matechuk on Etsy, is a piece made of fabric cut and collaged together.
This is such an adorable and simple little illustration! The illustrator is holli, from Argentina, who's shop is just full of these beautiful and sometimes obscure little drawings. The title of the drawing is Nieve, which I thought at first was a misspelling of naive, but then I remembered that it was the Spanish word for snow!
One of my favorite albums of all time, Vespertine by Björk, gives voice to what my eyes are hearing when I look out on the first snowfall of the year. Taking a walk with mittens on and trudging through the snow to see the Sedona red rocks sprinkled with white is only made better with this album playing in my iPod.
Here are two tracks that stand out the most for me on the album. Frosti, a delicate and beautiful instrumental first, followed by Unison, a charming and melodic song that would warm anyone's heart in the cold.
Frosti - Björk
Unison - Björk
