This is an illustration I made before Christmas but only getting around to posting it on my own site now. Illustrators Ireland members are invited to submit an illustration based on a one word brief, this time the word was “Frou Frou” – maybe that’s two words but let’s not split hairs. So the definition of Frou Frou is

froufrou [ˈfruːˌfruː]
1. a swishing sound, as made by a long silk dress
2. (Clothing & Fashion) elaborate dress or ornamentation, esp worn by women

I latched onto the idea of the silk dress and combined this lovely lady hippo with a dress worn in the style of Marilyn Monroe i.e. very windy. Here she is:

I’m thinking this little lady could be a good match with Elvis Bear of “If you go down to the woods today…”
