Illustration Friday: Prepared

Prepared - you have to be really prepared to enjoy a day at the beach in the hot Aussie sun (or you'll get burnt and end up looking and feeling like a cooked lobster...). Illo sketched by hand with felt tip pen, scanned onto Mac and coloured using Photoshop.

We recently went away for a few days to visit family who live near the beach... it doesn't matter if you go for two or twenty days, when you have kids there's a lot of preparation (and packing and planning ahead) involved, especially going to the beach when you're a non-beachy bunch like us! We rarely go, so the preparation involved is always super stressful - sunscreen, towels, swimmers, spare clothes, water, zinc, more sunscreen, more water, hats, sunglasses, rashies, boogie boards and a humungous bag to put everything in. And the sun is sooo hot here in Summer (and super intensified on the beach or in the water) so being prepared is very important for lilly pillies like us! Fun in the sun? Not if you get burnt! I know - I missed putting sunscreen on my ankles... the pain.
