Illustration Friday: Warning

Storm Codes illustration by Christina Rodriguez.

This small illustration for this week's Illustration Friday is a storm warning flag, which is flown to communicate with other sailors and ships in anticipation of severe weather. I painted this for the title page of the award-winning Storm Codes, a special children’s story about an ice storm on the Great Lakes, sailors’ codes, and a daughter’s heartfelt message of love.

Have a great weekend, everybody!

Cool! That book sounds interesting. I didn't know that about the flag.

What a great illustration for this weekend. Hoping it doesn't snow too much next week.
