groke

Some of you might be familiar with the Groke - the character from the Moomin stories. This cold silent creature was a representation of the loneliness and depression of Scandinavian winters. 


She is searching for warmth and friendship, but scares away any living creature and returns to her frozen cave on the top of the mountain.
I thought this drawing I did could be relevant now when days get shorter, darker and colder, and every now and then many of us feel the presence of the Groke.
