Writer and illustrator Shelley Jackson seems to be making the best of the miserable winter in New York City by using the element itself to create a short story.

Entitled SNOW, Shelley Jackson is taking on the challenge of writing a story in the snow one word at a time. After she beautifully writes out a word, she snaps a photo of it and uploads it to her Instagram account. The result is a beautiful art piece that excites the mind and ensnares the senses. Jackson is no stranger to this kind of story-telling, her story SKIN was tattooed one word at a time on the skin of 2,095 volunteers.
