The Wind


I was very surprised how hard it is to find a good image of the wind!
I am doing a custom illustration of a children's song, that involves the moon, the wind and a mother with child. In my mind the wind is this cheeky fellow , blowing his head away, with big nose, and big lips. Did I image him, or did I see him somewhere?
My attempts to google this image were useless. So I had to come up with something without any references. Which is also fun, but a bit harder to do.
I will keep looking, and if any of you have any ideas where to look, it would be greatly appreciated. Meanwhile, I introduce to you The Wind. (available in my shop now)

I think you captured the wind very well. In fact, I saw the picture first before anything else and thought "wind."

Dear Victoria,
For me this is a warm morning wind, blowing across the sea!Everybody loves him.:-)You may try to draw a furious one, or a rainy one... Some years ago I put on stage a puppet play, where the winds were invisible, because they were moving in a very high speed. But when they received ribbons, everybody could see them and that made them happy.

I love your work more and more... this wind is wonderful!
You should come here and the north wind might stop blowing for a second to pose for you!!

Here are some windy links:
a, b, c, d, e...

Funny those images of puff-cheeked winds are everywhere, but hard to google eh...
