Springtime for Penguins and Antarctica

If you've been coming to my blog for a long time, you know I have a special place in my heart for penguins. It's been a little while since I've shown the little tuxedo-ed swimmers some love, so I decided to incorporate them in to the "Springtime" topic at Toon Club.

This premise caused some problems, as penguins, especially the chilly willies I like to draw, don't typically find themselves locales that experience a "Springtime". So, ever the optimist, I decided to work in global warming and show what would happen if the antarctic circle melted enough for a nice pansy to bloom. (I'm going to get google search results for "nice pansy", aren't I? Sigh...)

Bad news for the penguins!

For now your blog comes up second when you Google "Adrian is a nice pansy," but now that I've added that exact phrase to your blog, it might have bumped you up to first. You're so very welcome!

I love the penguins you draw, even though I find your grim take on their future destruction to be a little upsettling. Is there a calendar yet? This one should be on May probably. Get to work with that.

Aww, poor penquins! Nice pansy, though.

I really like how you did the expressions on the penguins. Just wondering. How long did it take for you to a picture of this quality?

Thanks for the feedback. Richard, it took me about 2.5 hours. (I didn't work on the background very long...)
