‘His First Balloon’

’His First Balloon’

This penguin character started to develop when I received a commission to illustrate a penguin for a friend’s God daughter. I really cannot thank her enough to have given me such an opportunity to help me start an exciting avenue in art.

I’ve done a fair bit of research before approaching the task; observed and sketched different positions and expressions of penguins using books, internet and old photos at the aquarium. In the end I got enthralled and the love of penguins (especially baby penguins) have struck with me long after the task.
I’m hoping to create a picture book using this fellow one day.
