‘After the Snow’

Well I loved the snow… but at times we only seemed days away from the whole country grinding to a halt. But people in Scandinavia, Mongolia, Siberia, Canada etc deal with minus freezing temperatures all the time. So when the climate changes happens, when the gulf stream switches off, I figures a few years, decades or centuries on, you’d need a mixture tribal and salvaged tech to survive. It will be quite cosy underground in those buried sky scrapers. I’ve got my head torch and snow boots so I’m getting prepared. I guess I should have put a top of a tall building poking out of the snow, but I thought it too ‘planet of the apes’ obvious. sketches based on Mongolian archer women, scanned & painted in Photoshop. Did you know, a Mongolian composite bow, make of layers of wood bone & sinew, from Genghis Khans time, was more powerful in aim & range than bows of modern materials.

It's hard going on the #hands in these low #winter temperatures. Some #fragiletape brings relief to hacked spilt fingers but is no use for #throwingpottery. My left ✋ hand is also seizing up a bit.
