Pengins penny art back

Inspiration: I was watching penguins on Dirty Jobs and I had this temporary fixation of them at the time. It could be the weather. It also reminded me of how people are introduced to them as kids, hence “Pengins”, not Penguins.

About the Art: A contrast of the utter cold and stark, with the utter bright and warm. Besides, penguins make good art.

The significance of the number: RIP Douglas Adams, you did great work.

Materials: Artist’s gesso board, acrylic, sharpie, and penny, of course.

Size: 6 inches x 8 inches

About the Artist: I like doing stuff that interests me. What is it? Just anything that is new and different to old and traditional. There has to be an interesting aspect to things, but not same old run of the mill. There, I’ve told you everything, and it denotes nothing. Basically, give it a try. Give it a go. At least once. You know you want to.

    very cute, and great looking picture. I once heard that Pengins are considered by some to be “ice rats” because if they were ever to breed without all the harse evirormental hazards of the southern artic, they would reek hanok elsewhere in shear numbers… but maybe I’m wrong on that. Happy New Year.
