On Penguins :: Sobre os Pinguins

The penguin series is one of the oldest I have been working on. In 2005 I made my first penguin, a Christmas penguin with a Santa hat.

Since then I have made many more penguins, many of them with scarves and my favourite ones, the Hawaiian penguins. I really like the peculiarity of placing a creature from the remote and cold Antarctica in a summery context with Hula dancing costumes from Hawaii.

Recently I made a custom order for Hawaiian penguin brooches. I loved working on the details of their costumes and using a lot of colour! And since I was working with penguins, I came up with a new scarf model. What do you think?

A série pinguins é uma das mais antigas com que trabalho. Em 2005 fiz o meu primeiro pinguim, um pinguim Natal.

Desde essa altura fiz muitos mais pinguins, muitos deles com cachecóis, e os meus preferidos, os pinguins Havaianos. Gosto mesmo da contradição de colocar uma criatura de um local frio e remoto como a Antártida num ambiente quente com trajes tradicionais de dança Hula do Havai.

Recentemente fiz uma encomenda para um par de pregadeiras com pinguins Havaianos. Adorei trabalhar nos detalhes dos trajes e usar muita cor! E já que estava a trabalhar com pinguins aproveitei para fazer um novo modelo de cachecol. O que acham?
