🍂🌰 Last year around this time, @borisrijksen and I visited New York with our friends, and it was so nice to be there during fall! All the parks in yellow red and brown, the Halloween decorations, the cozy shopping windows, hot drinks and cinnamon cookies 🍂 and now, it’s fall again and it made me feel a bit nostalgic. So I draw this funny guy because you know New York is the home of many many of this fun little cheeky fella’s 🐿1 maand geleden
