It was a chilly morning, and a few hearty souls gathered at Eggshelland. I lasted about 40 minutes, before I had to head back to my car and crank up the heat. It was a good day to sketch, otherwise, though. No snow, right?
We had to strike to capture the Eggshelland display, though, because it's only up for about 2 weeks. This year's theme, which is not evident from the sketch, was Old Friends and New. There were several clusters of characters. The first was the critics from the Muppets, and then a cluster that had Miss Piggy, Fozzi, Gonzo, Kermit, Beaker, and Animal, and the last new cluster was Mario and Luigi of Nintendo fame.
Several of their yearly characters, a chick, bunny, and such, were laying on the ground instead of propped up by the big tree. They looked a little weathered, probably from the severe wind we'd had. The only one standing up was the owl that you see in my sketch.
