Autumn Leaves

I thought I’d make a monster to celebrate the arrival of my favourite season. In Ireland, the seasons rarely behave as they’re supposed to… mild spring days, balmy summer evenings and winter snows are the exception, rather than the rule. But for some reason, Autumn always delivers. The leaves fall off the trees, the days get shorter and there’s a little extra nip in the air that means I can crack out my winter woollies again… at this time of the year, I can even forgive the incessant rainfall. Almost. Anyway, this little guy is carrying a bundle of fallen leaves, and is decked out in all the cosy colours of the season. I had a great time going through an old children’s book about trees in search of ideas for leaf shapes…
