and now, some penguins

I’ve been thinking of penguins lately - penguins in sweaters to be precise! It’s almost become something of an obsession, as doodle after doodle features a flappy sea bird in a finely knit jumpers.

It all started with the call for knitters to aid the oil exposed penguins in New Zealand. And seriously, when you see a picture like this (link to image), tell me you don’t feel the urge to draw handsome penguins too.

So here is a little charmer getting a soapy scrub down as his friend is distracted by a suspicious scarf.

I could not believe that little penguin in a sweater ( your link)!

Hahaha, oh YES! I did see this and had to smile BIG (although the whole reason they have to wear sweaters in the first place is awful). Just when you thought penguins couldn't get any more delightful...! Your little guys are perfectly adorable! Love your linework. Just love it!

Your piece is lovely (as always!) and thanks for sharing the story.
It's very sad but inspiring at the same time.
Penguins do look very nice in sweaters :)
