Freeze, Illustration Friday

Like everybody else, I spent a good part of the past two weeks spellbound by the TV as the world's top athletes gathered for the Olympic games in London. Of course, all this "activity" during summer's heat has invited much indulging in frosty confections, like popsicles, smoothies and my fave, ice cream. I think I've perfected the technique of timing my intake, savoring each frozen gulp or bite, so I can honestly say I've never really experienced the dreaded ice cream headache, It's just one of the skills that go with the territory, that's all, and not soon to be featured in any Olympic event.
This week's IF theme being "Freeze," I thought it was safe and appropriate to put my little deer out on a warm summer night, frozen in a slightly different way, and only for the moment as the headlights pass.

Thanks to all the nice people of London and the UK for graciously hosting the summer games!
