I stole the idea for this drawing from a seventh-grade boy’s school art project and I don’t even want to show you the original, it’s so much cuter than this. But if you’re going to steal, steal from the best, and then give that thing you stole hollow, frightened eyes, an ax, and a mid-western backstory. What penguin wouldn’t love Fargo?
I love that it’s just a little egg-shaped bird. The shell cracked and it walked out like David St. Hubbins in Spinal Tap. Oh, how I long for the day when I’ll be able to draw David St. Hubbins hatching from a penguin egg.
