|Summers are Better Together by @QalcoveArt
Happy Memorial Day everybody…and welcome to our annual Summer Fanart Collection. Although technically it isn’t summer yet, (not for another three weeks,) Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial beginning of the season for a lot of people. Regrettably though, what with current events, the Summer of 2020 is going to be a bit less exciting than in years past.
However, we can still take a trip down memory lane, recalling the glory days of summers gone by, revisiting all our favorite summertime activities and keeping our hopes alive for the times yet to come.
And with that in mind, Zootopia News Network is pleased to present our 2020 Tribute to Summer Art of the Day collection.
Enjoy…and don’t forget to show the original artists some love by clicking on the source-links.
Hit it, boys!
There’s so much to do in the summertime…like going away on vacation.

…And the ever-popular past-time of hitting the water, whether it’s at the pool….

…the local water-park…

…or just hitting each other with water.

But by far, the most popular place to get wet in the summertime is at the beach.

Maybe the hottest summer water toy of the 2010’s is the paddleboard.
Aw, lighten up, Judy.

Yet another water-borne summer activity is to go skin-diving.

Or, for the slightly more adventurous souls among us, there’s scuba diving.

Well…why should Judy have all the fun? Notice the sharks in the background though? Nick always tends to get a bit reckless whenever he goes out on the water.
|Nick Wilde (Request) by KurosleepyPT
MORE than a bit reckless….
“So uh, Mr. Wilde…how did you manage to get that starfish shoved up your nose?”

And so, as the sun sets over the beachfront, we prepare to go check out a few of the other summer activities.

Summer is always a great time for picnics…

…including company picnics.

|The ZPD Annual Picnick by SpainFischer
Summer and road-trips have always gone paw in paw..
|I say ‘Hello!’ and greet from the rollercoaster by papierball
Ditto for summer and skateboards.
This piece, the Savanna Square pool pic, and the volleyball game pic are all the works of a newly discovered Zootopia fanartist, Spain Fischer, (who has actually been around, posting other works, for more than a while now.) Be sure and check out her Deviantart and Twitter Pages, she’s great.

And here we have MY favorite Summer activity. Don’t let him get away, Jack.
|Reel Him In by @ittybittykt
Summer, of course, is when the summer blockbusters hit the movie theaters.
(Not so much this year, unfortunately–at least, not yet.)
|Zootopia Screening by Lhuin
Needless to say, summer is also the peak season for amusement and theme parks.
She’ll ride on the outside of a runaway subway car, but getting on a roller-coaster makes her nervous? Go fig.
|Roller-coaster by Mancoin
This one’s apparently a little too tame for Nick.

Geeee, now I wonder where THIS place could be?

And, of course, summer just wouldn’t be summer without ice-cream.

Behold, my masterpiece.

And with that, we move on to some evening summer fanpics.
Toasting marshmallows is always a summertime favorite.

Come the 4th of course, there’ll be fireworks to enjoy.

You want fireworks? We’ve got some some REAL fireworks for ya.

But when it comes to lighting up a summer night, nobody beats Mother Nature.
|Fireflies by @ulako414
And finally…summer is a great time of year, but please don’t get the wrong impression; it’s never all play and no work,
(although some of the younger set never seem to get the memo.)

Until next time…stay safe and be well.
